NAMEGAP - Groups, Algorithms and Programming
DESCRIPTIONGAP is a system for computational discrete algebra with particular emphasis on computational group theory, but which has already proved useful also in other areas. In the example text, gap is used to analyse Rubik's Cube using group theory. A kernel implements a pascal-like language.
