Dear Martin, I have a question regarding matrix groups (I don't know if I have choosen

the right forum).

I am calculating some group data with GAP 3.3

for groups defined by (4x4) generators over GF(7).

I am interested in particular in the factors of the

derived series of the groups. Would the running time be shorter if the groups

were defined by a smaller set of generators? (Say 5 instead of 13.)

Yours, C. Charnes
