5 Approximating the Schur multiplier

The algorithm in [Har10] approximates the Schur multiplier of an invariantly finitely L-presented group by the quotients in its Dwyer-filtration. This is implemented in the lpres-package and the following methods are available:

5.1 Methods

5.1-1 GeneratingSetOfMultiplier
‣ GeneratingSetOfMultiplier( lpgroup )( operation )

uses Tietze transformations for computing an equivalent set of relators for lpgroup so that a generating set for its Schur multiplier can be read off easily.

5.1-2 FiniteRankSchurMultiplier
‣ FiniteRankSchurMultiplier( lpgroup, c )( operation )

computes a finitely generated quotient of the Schur multiplier of lpgroup. The method computes the image of the Schur multiplier of lpgroup in the Schur multiplier of its class-c quotient.

5.1-3 EndomorphismsOfFRSchurMultiplier
‣ EndomorphismsOfFRSchurMultiplier( lpgroup, c )( operation )

computes a list of endomorphisms of the `FiniteRankSchurMultiplier' of lpgroup. These are the endomorphisms of the invariant L-presentation induced to `FiniteRankSchurMultiplier'.

5.1-4 EpimorphismCoveringGroups
‣ EpimorphismCoveringGroups( lpgroup, d, c )( operation )

computes an epimorphism of the covering group of the class-d quotient onto the covering group of the class-c quotient.

5.1-5 EpimorphismFiniteRankSchurMultiplier
‣ EpimorphismFiniteRankSchurMultiplier( lpgroup, d, c )( operation )

computes an epimorphism of the d-th `FiniteRankSchurMultiplier' of the invariant lpgroup onto the c-th `FiniteRankSchurMultiplier'. Its restricts the epimorphism `EpimorphismCoveringGroups' to the corresponding finite rank multipliers.

5.1-6 ImageInFiniteRankSchurMultiplier
‣ ImageInFiniteRankSchurMultiplier( lpgroup, c, elm )( function )

computes the image of the free group element elm in the c-th `FiniteRankSchurMultiplier'. Note that elm must be a relator contained in the Schur multiplier of lpgroup; otherwise, the function fails in computing the image.

The following example tackels the Schur multiplier of the Grigorchuk group.
