Dear GAP Forum members --
I am pleased to report acceptance of the GAP4 Package "Repsn" by Vahid
Dabbaghian-Abdoly. The package deals with the computation of complex
irreducible representations of finite groups and provides a combination
of several heuristics for constructing the representations in question
by inducing or extending representations of suitable subgroups (as an
application of Clifford's Theorem).
It also includes a special treatment of perfect groups, with the effect
that the functions of the package can compute a representation affording
any irreducible group character of degree less than 32, with no
restriction on the degree if the group is solvable.
The package will be included in the standard GAP package distribution
and is available now from www.math.carleton.ca/~vdabbagh/gap/repsn.html.
