25 Simplicial groups

25.1  

25.1-1 NerveOfCatOneGroup
‣ NerveOfCatOneGroup( G, n )( function )

Inputs a cat-1-group G and a positive integer n. It returns the low-dimensional part of the nerve of G as a simplicial group of length n.

This function applies both to cat-1-groups for which IsHapCatOneGroup(G) is true, and to cat-1-groups produced using the Xmod package.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples: 1 , 2 , 3 

25.1-2 EilenbergMacLaneSimplicialGroup
‣ EilenbergMacLaneSimplicialGroup( G, n, dim )( function )

Inputs a group G, a positive integer n, and a positive integer dim. The function returns the first 1+dim terms of a simplicial group with n-1st homotopy group equal to G and all other homotopy groups equal to zero.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 

25.1-3 EilenbergMacLaneSimplicialGroupMap
‣ EilenbergMacLaneSimplicialGroupMap( global variable )

Inputs a group homomorphism f:G→ Q, a positive integer n, and a positive integer dim. The function returns the first 1+dim terms of a simplicial group homomorphism f:K(G,n) → K(Q,n) of Eilenberg-MacLane simplicial groups.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples:

25.1-4 MooreComplex
‣ MooreComplex( G )( function )

Inputs a simplicial group G and returns its Moore complex as a G-complex.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples:

25.1-5 ChainComplexOfSimplicialGroup
‣ ChainComplexOfSimplicialGroup( G )( function )

Inputs a simplicial group G and returns the cellular chain complex C of a CW-space X represented by the homotopy type of the simplicial group. Thus the homology groups of C are the integral homology groups of X.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 

25.1-6 SimplicialGroupMap
‣ SimplicialGroupMap( global variable )

Inputs a homomorphism f:G→ Q of simplicial groups. The function returns an induced map f:C(G) → C(Q) of chain complexes whose homology is the integral homology of the simplicial group G and Q respectively.

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

Examples:

25.1-7 HomotopyGroup
‣ HomotopyGroup( G, n )( function )

Inputs a simplicial group G and a positive integer n. The integer n must be less than the length of G. It returns, as a group, the (n)-th homology group of its Moore complex. Thus HomotopyGroup(G,0) returns the "fundamental group" of G.

Examples: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 

25.1-8 Representation of elements in the bar resolution

25.1-12 BarComplexBoundary
‣ BarComplexBoundary( global variable )

This function inputs a word w in the n-th term of the bar complex BC_n(G) and returns its image under the boundary homomorphism d_n: BC_n(G) → BC_n-1(G) in the bar complex.

Examples:

25.1-13 BarResolutionEquivalence
‣ BarResolutionEquivalence( R )( function )

This function inputs a free ZG-resolution R. It first constructs the chain complex T=TensorWithIntegerts(R). The function returns a component object HE with components

This function was implemented by Van Luyen Le.

25.1-15 Representation of elements in the bar cocomplex
‣ Representation of elements in the bar cocomplex( global variable )

For a group G we denote by BC^n(G) the free abelian group with basis the lists [g_1 | g_2 | ... | g_n] where the g_i range over G.

We represent a word

w = [g_11 | g_12 | ... | g_1n] - [g_21 | g_22 | ... | g_2n] + ... + [g_k1 | g_k2 | ... | g_kn]
