GAP - Groups, Algorithms and Programming


GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis on
computational group theory, but which has already proved useful also in other areas. In
the example text, gap is used to analyse Rubik's Cube using group theory. A kernel
implements a pascal-like language.
