## Contents

## Definition

This group is defined as the dihedral group of order and degree .

## GAP implementation

### Group ID

This finite group has order 256 and has ID 539 among the groups of order 256 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are groups of order 256. It can thus be defined using GAP's SmallGroup function as:

`SmallGroup(256,539)`

For instance, we can use the following assignment in GAP to create the group and name it :

`gap> G := SmallGroup(256,539);`

Conversely, to check whether a given group is in fact the group we want, we can use GAP's IdGroup function:

`IdGroup(G) = [256,539]`

or just do:

`IdGroup(G)`

to have GAP output the group ID, that we can then compare to what we want.
