The functions on this page were written by **Paul Smith**. (They are included in HAP but they are also independently included in Paul Smiths HAPprime package.)

`Mod2CohomologyRingPresentation(G) ` `Mod2CohomologyRingPresentation(G,n) ` `Mod2CohomologyRingPresentation(A) ` `Mod2CohomologyRingPresentation(R) `
When applied to a finite 2-group G this function returns a presentation for the mod 2 cohomology ring H^*(G,Z_2). The Lyndon-Hochschild-Serre spectral sequence is used to prove that the presentation is correct. When the function is applied to a 2-group G and positive integer n the function first constructs n terms of a free Z_2G-resolution R, then constructs the finite-dimensional graded algebra A=H^(*le n)(G,Z_2), and finally uses A to approximate a presentation for H^*(G,Z_2). For "sufficiently large" the approximation will be a correct presentation for H^*(G,Z_2). Alternatively, the function can be applied directly to either the resolution R or graded algebra A.

`PoincareSeriesLHS(G) `
Inputs a finite 2-group G and returns a quotient of polynomials f(x)=P(x)/Q(x) whose coefficient of x^k equals the rank of the vector space H_k(G,Z_2) for all k. This function was written by |
