Applied Algebra and Analysis Groups (AAAG), Faculty of Science and Frontier Materials Research Alliance, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Johor Bahru is pleased to announce that it is organizing a GAP Workshop on 7 April 2019 (Sunday) at Meeting & Presentation Room/Main Meeting Room, Department of Mathematical Sciences, C22 Level 3, Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Bahru, Johor (Click here for the map).

BACKGROUND
Groups, Algorithms, and Programming (GAP) software is a computer algebra system that provides a platform to do computational discrete mathematics. Its primary purpose is to do computational group theory but it also can deal with many other algebraic systems including groups, rings and polynomials. The overall strategy is to have one system or platform where all of this computation can be carried out and data structures shared. The type system is fully dynamic so that an object’s type changes as more information about the object is collected. The GAP system contains a number of libraries and is extensible in that package can be written which provide functionality to the system. In this workshop, we will explore the GAP system, use the basic system distributed to make some interesting computations and write some GAP programs.

The workshop was conducted by Dr. Sheila Ilangovan from Foundation of Science, Faculty of Science, The University of Nottingham Malaysia campus assisted by some facilitators.
