About the course:

In this series of lectures we aim to study the use of computer algebra systems (mainly GAP) in group theory.

The course begins with a brief motivational introduction to computational group theory.

Then we give an overview of various systems which are suitable for computations with groups, including GAP, MAGMA, SAGE, . . .

The course will cover many aspects of group theory, including:

  • Semi-Groups
  • Cyclic groups
  • Permutation groups
  • Free groups
  • Subgroups and their normalizers
  • Group actions: stabilizer, orbit, . . .
  • Group homomorphisms: image, kernel, . . .
  • Sylow subgroups
  • . . .


Many examples and exercises will be provided during the semester. Some of the exercises will be marked as homework with a deadline and they contribute to the final evaluation (10%).

A list of projects will be given once the course has started running. Every student is supposed to do a project (from the list or an
"interesting" project of his/her own choice by agreement with the lecturer). The project consists of a short essay and a presentation in one of the exercise sessions. The duration of each presentation will be between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on how YOU feel about it. This will contribute 40% to the final evaluation.

The final exam's contribution is 60%.

Yes, the total is 110%. :)
