Dear GAP Forum,
I am delighted to announce the acceptance of the FPLSA share package,
by V.P. Gerdt and V.V. Kornyak, both of the Laboratory of Computing
Techniques and Automation, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna,
This package provides an interface between GAP4 (version 4 beta 5, or
the forthcoming version 4.1) and the program fplsa, version 4.0, which
is used to provide a faster and more capable method of finding the
structure constants of a finitely-presented Lie Algebra.
Since the package includes an external C program, it can only be used
under UNIX and is not available on the Macintosh or under Windows.
More information can be found from the GAP4 Share packages page
and the package can be downloaded from
Installation instructions can be found at:
All of the information and software will appear on out Web and FTP
mirror sites (in Aachen, Boston and Canberra) in the next few days.
