# Questions tagged [gap]

GAP (Groups, Algorithms and Programming) is a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computational Group Theory. It provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms, and large data libraries of algebraic objects.

### Obtaining quiver and relations for finite p-groups

Given a finite field $K$ with $p$ elements and a finite $p$-group $G$, is there a way to obtain the quiver and relations of $KG$ with GAP (and its package QPA)?
Since $KG$ is local, the quiver should ...

### Recovering the bimodule from the trivial extension

Given a ring $S$ with a non-zero $S$-bimodule $M$, the trivial extension of $(S,M)$ is defined as the ring $R:=T_M(S)$ with $R= S \oplus M$ with multiplication $(s,m)(s',m')=(s s', sm' +m s')$.
We ...

### Computing the class-preserving automorphism group of finite $p$-groups

Let $G$ be a finite non-abelian $p$-group, where $p$ is a prime. An automorphism $\alpha$ of $G$ is called a class-preserving if for each $x\in G$, there exists an element $g_x\in G$ such that $\alpha(...

### Is there a subgroup of dual depth 3?

This post is motivated by an exchange with Zhengwei Liu. It is more than the dual version of this post, because we consider any subgroup (instead of just maximal), and even more at the end...
Let's ...

### Is there a maximal subgroup of depth 3?

Let's first define what we mean by depth of a subgroup.
Let $G$ be a finite group and $H$ a subgroup. Let $(V_i)_{i \in I}$ and $(W_j)_{j \in J}$ be the irreducible complex representations of $G$ ...

### Interpreting $H^n(BG,\mathbb Z)$ when $G$ is an infinite discrete group

Suppose $G$ is a two-dimensional space group, for example a semidirect product of $\mathbb Z^2$ with a crystallographic point group such as $\mathbb Z_2$, where the action of $\mathbb Z_2$ on $\mathbb ...
