Dear GAP forum,
I have Co_1 represented as a matrix group with dimension 24 over GF(2) (using
the standard generators a & b from the www-ATLAS) and several group elements
in matrix form. I would like to express these elements as words in the
generators. I have tried constucting a free group of rank 2 and creating an
appropriate homomorphism using "GroupHomomorphismByImages" but this exhausts
the workspace I am using. Any ideas about other ways of proceeding?
