Program that gives subgroup

  1. Mar 8, 2010 #1
    I need a program that can give me all the subgroups of a group that I define. I also need it to give me the names of the subgroups as per some predefined library.

    I tried GAP. It gives me the subgroups, but each subgroup is represented by a list of generators. There seems to be no way to make it print a name for the subgroups, like say S4 for symmetric group of four elements.

    In fact, if I give the generators of S4 as input, it cannot identify it and give an output stating that it is S4.

    Any suggestions?
