I'm a relative newbie to GAP.
Recently I saw a post at rec.puzzles regarding a permutation puzzle, which
the poster had done some analysis using magma. I wanted to do the same sort
of analysis with GAP.
The magma command sequence was something like this (specific details don't
G:=PermutationGroup ...; f:=InverseWordMap(G); g:=G!(15,16); sol:=f(g); #sol;
In my case, I got as far as this, defining my puzzle with
puzzle := Group ((1,2,3,7,11,10,9,5), (2,3,4,8,12,11,10,6), (5,6,7,11,15,14,13,9), (6,7,8,12,16,15,14,10));;
and counting the size of the group with
But I don't see any corresponding operation to magma's InverseWordMap and
Anyone out there have any hints?
Thanks in any case,
