Date: 25 Jun 1995 05:55:11 GMT
Keywords: p-group software
Version 1.3 of the ANU p-Quotient Program is now available
by anonymous FTP.
This version can be run as part of the anupq share library
of GAP 3.2 (and later versions). Much of it is also
accessible via Magma and Quotpic.
The Unix tar file, pq.v1-3.tar.Z, of the program may be
fetched by anonymous ftp from pub/algebra/PQ directory on
pell.anu.edu.au (IP number 150.203.33.4)
The file is also available from /pub/incoming
on ftp.math.rwth-aachen.de
The file can be uncompressed and unpacked as follows:
uncompress pq.v1-3.tar.Z
tar -xvf pq.v1-3.tar
This will create a directory called pq and needs
about 1.5 MB of free disk space.
Please read the README file in the pq directory for
all necessary compilation details. Instructions for
compiling and using the GAP package version can be
found in the GAP manual.
The program provides access to implementations of
the following algorithms:
-- p-quotient computations;
-- p-group generation;
-- a "standard presentation" algorithm which permits
isomorphism testing for p-groups;
-- an algorithm to compute a description of the
automorphism group of a p-group.
Feedback and bug reports are welcomed.
