The order of this group is shown as 15. **c,f** in Cayley_table() corresponds to these generators. Is there a way to print these 15 elements a,b,c.....m,n,o in terms of these generators c,f?

1. Do the subgroups returned by conjugacy_classes_subgroups() satisfy the property that if K and L are two of the returned subgroups such that a conjugate of K is a subgroup of L, then K is a subgroup of L (we can construct a lattice from the subgroups returned)
2. If not, what will be the most optimal way to do this? My current algorithm checks if any conjugate of H is a subgroup of the list returned in conjugacy_classes_subgroups().

I know (by the properties of `f` that I'm not specifiying here) that the list of `g`'s that leave it fixed generate one of the 11 conjugacy subclasses of S(4).
What is the best way to output from my code below a number between 1 and 11 that corresponds to such subclass?
R = PolynomialRing(QQ, 4, ["q1","q2","q3","q4"])

I am wondering how to solve the following problem efficiently.
I have a Permuation Group $G$ acting on $A = \{1,\ldots,n\}$ and I wish to compute the orbits of $G$ but not the ones of $G$ acting on $A$ but rather for $G$ acting on some $S \subseteq A \times A$ in the natural way. That is if $g \in G$ and $ x = \{a,b\} \in S$ then $x^g = {a^g,b^g\} \in S$
Other software for permuation groups (magma, gap) allows to do this by specifing an additional option "on sets/on tuples" to compute the specifed orbits.
I am wondering how could I do the same in sage, given a permuation group $G$ and an $S$ as described above.
Thanks!SGQWed, 26 Dec 2012 10:56:11 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9652/Automorphism group of edge symmetryhttps://ask.sagemath.org/question/47334/automorphism-group-of-edge-symmetry/ I asked a similar question before,

Consider the Permutation Group $S_3$.
The elements of $S_3$ are $e,(12),(13),(23),(123),(132)$.
I want to draw a graph $G$ whose members are the elements of $S_3$ and two vertices $x,y$ are adjacent if and only if $xy\neq yx$.
I am stuck in doing the following things:
1. How to call the elements of $S_3$ through a loop?
2. How to draw the graph $G$ ?
I can check whether they commute or not but I am stuck in the two things.
Is there any way to write the code in SageMath?
As an example if I input $S_3$ I want to get the following graph
$G=Graph({1:[2,3,4,5],2:[1,3,4,5],3:[1,2,4,5],4:[1,2,3],5:[1,2,3]})$

G.automorphism_group().list()
However, the above way can only be used to the unweighted graph. So for example:
G = matrix([[0,10,0],
[10,0,1],
[0,1,0]])
G1 = Graph(G, weighted = True)
G1.show(edge_labels=True )
G.automorphism_group().list()
The result is:
[(), (0,2)]
However, this result is not correct (correct for unweighted case). This is because $AD\neq DA$, where
$$D = \begin{bmatrix} 0 & 0 & 1 \\\ 0 & 1 & 0 \\\ 1 & 0 & 0\end{bmatrix},$$ which is a permutation matrix and
$$A = \begin{bmatrix} 0 & 10 & 0 \\\ 10 & 0 & 1 \\\ 0 & 1 & 0\end{bmatrix},$$ which is an adjacency matrix.
Can we use SAGE to find the group of automorphisms of a graph?sleeve chenThu, 28 Jun 2018 03:22:14 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/42762/Generating output in SAGE in a certain form.https://ask.sagemath.org/question/42228/generating-output-in-sage-in-a-certain-form/I want to use SAGE to generate an output that is suitable for GAP to do further stuff with it.
The input should be a natural number $n \geq 2$.
The output should be a list of tuples containing the non-trivial permutations in their standard form (for example [2,3,1] is the permutation mapping 1->2,2->3,3->1) as the first entry of the tuple and the second entry of the tuple should be their reduced word from ( for [2,3,1] it is [1, 2], obtained via Permutation([2,3,1]).reduced_word_lexmin() ).
So for $n=3$ the output should look as follows:
[ [[1,3,2], [2]], [[2,1,3], [1]], [[2,3,1] , [1, 2]], [[3,1,2], [2, 1]],[[3,2,1] ,[1, 2, 1]] ]
So the question is more how to do this quickly with SAGE and is not really mathematical. Sorry in case this question is very elementary, but I have no much experience with SAGE and rarely use it.sagequstionsMon, 30 Apr 2018 17:17:49 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/42228/does as_permutation_group() respect generators?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/40927/does-as_permutation_group-respect-generators/From sage documentation I can construct a group as follows:
sage: m1 = matrix(GF(11), [[1,2],[3,4]])
sage: m2 = matrix(GF(11), [[1,3],[10,0]])
sage: G = MatrixGroup(m1, m2); G
Matrix group over Finite Field of size 11 with 2 generators (
[1 2] [ 1 3]
[3 4], [10 0]
)
Now I use the following code:
sage: G_p=G.as_permutation_group(); G_p
Permutation Group with generators [(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11)(12,13,15,14,16)(17,18), (1,3,5,7,9,11,2,4,6,8,10)(12,14,13,16,15)(17,18)]
In this case it is true that the generators of G are in correspondence with the generators of G_p. Is this always the case? I mean, if I compute a very complicated group G with lots of generators and its corresponding permutation group G_p, then is it true that G.gens()[i] corresponds to G_p.gens[i]?amontero90Thu, 01 Feb 2018 20:20:47 +0100https://ask.sagemath.org/question/40927/Is there a way to relabel the domain of a permutation group?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/36592/is-there-a-way-to-relabel-the-domain-of-a-permutation-group/ Suppose I have a permutation group on the domain {1,2,3,4,5}, but instead I wanted this permutation group to be on the domain {a,b,c,d,e}.

Combine generators of two groups?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/26590/add-generator-to-a-group-combine-generators-of-two-groups/Hi guys, I am wondering how to efficiently do the following two things in Sage
1. add a generator h to a existing group G to create a new group, e.g. from
sage: h = (3,4)
sage: G = PermutationGroup([(1,2),(1,3)])
how to get a new group N with generators [(1,2),(1,3),(3,4)].
I can do this by using `G.gens()` and adding `(3,4)` to the list and calling `PermutationGroup()`,
but it looks awkward, is there a more efficient way?
2. create a new group from generators of two existing group, e.g. from
sage: G = PermutationGroup([(1,2),(1,3)])
sage: H = PermutationGroup([(3,4)])
how to get a new group N with generators [(1,2),(1,3),(3,4)]?
Currently I can do this by : `N = PermutationGroup(G.gens()+H.gens())`

For each graph I compute, I temporarily need to compute its automorphism group -- but I don't need to, and don't want to, remember that automorphism group. It looks like sage deals with graphs on its own but calls Gap to deal with automorphism groups.
The problem is that Gap, not sage, exceeds it permitted memory. Why? Here is a (silly) example of what I'm talking about: running
mylist=[];
count = 1;
while True:
g = graphs.RandomGNP(6, .5);
aut = g.automorphism_group();
mylist.append(g);

For me it sometime scrambles them.https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9315/does-sage-keep-the-order-of-vertices-in-a-graph-and-its-group-or-scramble-them-for-me-it-sometime-scrambles-them/I use the Sage automorphism_group function to find the group that leaves an adjacency matric, say C, invariant under a similarity transformation. But sometimes it seems the results are for matrices on a vertex space that is not the same as the original, but is reordered.
A simple example on a 3-vertex graph: o--o--o.
with index order 1 0 2
Adjacency matrix= C =
[0 1 1]
[1 0 0]
[1 0 0]
The group is the identity and a reflection about the center vertex:
[1 0 0] [0 1 0]
[0 1 0] and [1 0 0] = R
[0 0 1] [0 0 1]
I would have expected the reflection to be,
[1 0 0]
[0 0 1]
[0 1 0],
but R is what Sage gives.
Sure enough, RCR^-1 gives the following,
[0 1 0]
[1 0 1]
[0 1 0]
which is *not* the original C matrix. However the R transformation leaves the matrix
[0 0 1]
[0 0 1] = C'
[1 1 0]
invariant. The last matrix is the C matrix where the vertices are indexed in reverse order.
Does Sage have some canonical way it orders the vertices in graphs and groups?
A bit more info, maybe. The order of the irreducible representation table seems to give a hint. If the trivial representation is the first row (which it is for some graphs), it appears (from a few tests) that the vertices retain their original order to align with C. If the trivial representation is the last row then the matrix C' is the adjacency matrix (suggesting a reordering of the vertices). I have no idea why this should be related if it is.
Bottom line for me is I cannot apply any matrices from the group that come from the matrix() method to C or other objects in my original vertex space since they are ordered differently. I don't see how to find the vertex order sage uses. Any help or insight appreciated.
LouChaosWed, 12 Sep 2012 12:20:15 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9315/Order of Irreducible Representation Characters wrong in Sage?https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9300/order-of-irreducible-representation-characters-wrong-in-sage/I am using Sage to calculate Irreducible Representations (IRR) of symmetry groups of graphs. Most of the time the order of the IRR characters match the order of the conjugacy class representatives. For example the trivial representation characters are the first row of the character table (1,1,1,1,...,1) and the first conjugacy class is ( ), the identity representation. But in the example below for a star graph (one central vertex, the 4 other vertices on spokes from the center) the trivial representation characters are the *last* row in the character table and the conjugacy class representatives have the identity as the *first* element.
Example (star graph).
ct=G.character_table()
print ct
[ 1 -1 1 1 -1]
[ 3 -1 -1 0 1]
[ 2 0 2 -1 0]
[ 3 1 -1 0 -1]
[ 1 1 1 1 1] <--- trivial rep. is last
cc=G.conjugacy_classes_representatives()
print cc
[(), (1,2), (1,2)(3,4), (1,2,3), (1,2,3,4)]
^ trivial class is first
Is this a bug or known issue for Sage? How can I get around it so I know the orders of the characters and representatives match up properly?

I've gotten other error messages as well, but nothing I can reliably reproduce.
If you delete the start and join lines for a or b in the code, it runs fine, of course.
Any ideas here? In case you're curious, the reason I'm trying to thread is this. I have a bunch of problems that can be solved by either of two different methods. For any given problem, one method is usually much faster than the other, but it's difficult to predict in advance which one will be the faster one, so for a given problem I'd like to run both methods simultaneously and accept the result from whichever method finishes first. Any ideas for how to do this in a way that avoids this error are welcome.Martin MalandroFri, 24 Aug 2012 19:12:10 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7510/Permutation group: (1234)=(12)(13)(14)https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9060/permutation-group-1234121314/How do I show in sage that
(1234)=(12)(13)(14)
I tried make use of:
PermutationGroup([1,2]) * PermutationGroup([1,3])
but it doesn't do what is needed.bk322Tue, 12 Jun 2012 09:25:04 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/9060/
