ElementaryGroup( p, n )
ElementaryGroup( p, n, form = f )
a prime number
a positive integer
: string : either "permgroup" or "fpgroup"
An elementary Abelian group of order pn, where p is a prime number, is a direct product (or direct sum) of n copies of the cyclic group of order p.
The ElementaryGroup( p, n ) command returns an elementary Abelian group of order pn, either as a permutation group or as a finitely presented group, according to the value of the form option. By default, a permutation group is returned.
G ≔ ElementaryGroup⁡3,4
G ≔ C34
G ≔ ElementaryGroup⁡3,5,'form'=fpgroup
G ≔ C35
G ≔ ElementaryGroup⁡17,3
G ≔ C173
The GroupTheory[ElementaryGroup] command was introduced in Maple 17.
