Definition

This group of order 256 is defined by the following presentation: $\! G := \langle a_1, a_2, a_3, a_4, a_5 \mid a_1^2 = a_2^2 = a_3^4 = a_4^4 = a_5^4 = e, [a_1,a_2] = a_3^2, [a_1,a_3] = e, [a_2,a_3] = a_4^2, [a_1,a_4] = [a_3,a_4] = e, [a_2,a_4] = a_5^2, [a_1,a_5] = [a_2,a_5] = [a_3,a_5] = [a_4,a_5] = e \rangle$

GAP implementation

Group ID

This finite group has order 256 and has ID 29626 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(256,29626)

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

gap> G := SmallGroup(256,29626);

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

IdGroup(G) = [256,29626]

or just do:

IdGroup(G)

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