Software

I am co-author of several external GAP packages. In order to browse through the manuals, you may just follow the links below, which direct you to the respective packages homepages. To use the packages, you must have a working copy of GAP with version number 4.5 or higher. In this case, you have probably already obtained the packages as part of the GAP distribution.

I am also maintainer of these packages.

Mathematical software plays many times an important role in the reasoning that ultimately leads to the proof of a theorem. The extensive consideration of examples usually benefits from computational means. But once a theorem is proved, one may ignore these means. Anyway, some authors like to provide some recognition… Pointers to some papers citing packages for which I am co-author may be found in my google scholar page.

I have written some notes (in portuguese) “Uma Introdução ao GAP” for a small course. They are available as a pdf file from here and also from the GAP web page.

If you are a Linux user you may wish to install GAP in a very comfortable way using Frank Luebeck‘s webpage.
