Dears,

Sorry for inconvenience,

There is an error in the explaining of the requested

function. In the definition of $w_i$'s, it must be as

follows:

$w_i=[x_{j_1}^{a_1},\dots,x_{j_{t_i}}^{a_{t_i}}]$ where $a_q$'s are in $\{ -1, 1 \}$.

Now the question is as follows:

Let $x_1,\dots, x_n$ be the generators of the free

group of rank $n$ and $k$ be a positive integer.

I look for a function with the following input and

output in GAP (or somthing like this):

the input of the function is : $x_1,\dots, x_n$ and

$k$.the output is the list $w_1,\dots, w_s$ satisfying

the

following conditions:

$(x_1 \cdots x_n)^k=x_1^k \cdots x_n^k w_1 \cdots w_s$ for all $i=1,\dots, s$, $w_i=[x_{j_1}^{a_1},\dots,x_{j_{t_i}}^{a_{t_i}}]$

where

$a_q$'s are in $\{ -1, 1 \}$$j_1, \dots, j_{t_i}$ in $\{ 1, \dots, n \}$ and$t_1 \leq t_2 \leq \dots \leq t_s$. ( "$[y_1,\dots, y_m]$" donotes the usual left normed commutator defined inductively by $[x,_0 y]=x$, $[x,_1 y]:=[x,y]:=x^{-1}y^{-1}xy$ and $[y_1,\dots,y_m]=[[y_1,\dots,y_{m-1}],y_m]$ for all $m>1$.Of course the commutators $w_i$'s are depend to the

way of collecting $x_i$'s and in practice they are

not necessarily unique.Thanks for any help.

With best wishes
