## GAP implementation

### Group ID

This finite group has order 243 and has ID 23 among the groups of order 243 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are groups of order 243. It can thus be defined using GAP's SmallGroup function as:

SmallGroup(243,23)

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

gap> G := SmallGroup(243,23);

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

IdGroup(G) = [243,23]

or just do:

IdGroup(G)

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

### Other descriptions

The group can be defined using GAP's CyclicGroup and DirectProduct functions, as follows:

DirectProduct(CyclicGroup(81),CyclicGroup(3))
