Mini-course on GAP
January 13, 2020 - January 17, 2020
Leandro Vendramin of the University of Buenos Aires will give a
special minicourse from January 13-17. The course will be on the
computer algebra system GAP. It will take place in the Department of
Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie, and will also be
live-streamed. It will be suitable for undergraduates, graduate
students, postdocs, faculty, and everyone interested in symbolic
The first lecture of the minicourse will also work as a colloquium.

Title: Algebra with GAP
Abstract: We will give a brief introduction to the software GAP,
designed for calculations related to group theory. The course will be
mainly based on examples, exercises and application problems. We will
discuss several different introductory mathematical topics such as
permutations, matrices, groups, rings, and fields. More advanced
topics such as characters and representation of groups, algebras, and
other algebraic structures, will also be studied. GAP is freely
available at https://www.gap-system.org/
The minicourse is organized by the Atlantic Algebra Centre at Memorial
University and by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at
Dalhousie University, under the auspices of the AARMS Collaborative
Research Group on “Groups, Rings and Hopf Algebras”.
