GAP Package Polenta

The Polenta package provides methods to compute polycyclic presentations of matrix groups (finite or infinite). As a by-product, this package gives some functionality to compute certain module series for modules of solvable groups. For example, if G is a rational polycyclic matrix group, then we can compute the radical series of the natural Q[G]-module Q^d.

The current version of this package is version 1.3.8, released on 2017-11-29. For more information, please refer to the package manual. There is also a README file.
