This package containing diverse functions for workin with simple Lie algebras in GAP (base fields are of characteristic 0).


To install the package SLA move the file sla-XX.tar.gz (or any other archive containing it) into the pkg directory. Usually this will be the pkg subdirectory in your GAP4 installation. However, it is also possible to have a pkg subdirectory in a different place, see the section Installing GAP Packages of the GAP4 reference manual for more information.
