Description (last modified by )
Adds a table to constructions/groups that explains how to create every group of order less than 32. Each such group can now be created with just a few easy commands thanks to the patches listed here as dependencies.

Attached is an updated table. After quite a bit of experimenting, I figured out a way to get all of the commands to get set as script and be doctests. Do you think this was the right choice (addressing 8 and 11)?
Also, I didn't add the Thomas/Woods? ids, as I don't own a copy of the book anymore. I don't think they are really necessary, considering how difficult the book is to get one's hands on, but if you really do we can figure out a way for me to get a copy.

I don't know Thomas/Woods. But I think the de-facto standard of enumerating the small groups in computational group theory circles is GAP's IdGroup
, being a pair (order, n)
where n
starts at 1 and indexes the groups. Of course its easy to compute if you install the (non-GPL) small group database:
sage: install_package('database_gap') ... sage: G = DihedralGroup(10) sage: gap(G).IdGroup() [ 20, 4 ]
What I'm trying to say : If there is space then it would be nice to have the GAP ids in the table.

I added the GAP Ids to the table.

Kevin,
Very nice. This will be a great contribution. Comments, in order of appearance,I think.
