### Group given by congruence relation

Hi,

Beginner in Sage (I love it!) , I want to ask you this maybe naive question:

I have a group $G$ defined by $\lbrace M \in SL_2(Z) \ | \ M = I + kB \ mod(N) \rbrace$, where $I$ is the identity, $N$ a given positive integer, $B$ is a given fixed matrix verifying $B^2 = 0$ and $k \in \mathbb Z /N\mathbb Z$. I want to explore conjugacy classes/subgroups of this group $G$ for some specific $B$ and $N$. Is this subgroup finitely generated for some $N$? subgroups of finite index? etc... Do I have a way to do that with SageMath?

Remark that

It is subgroup of a finitely generated group butv that do not imply that it is finitely generated

$B^2 = 0$ gives that $I + kB = \Lambda^k \ with \ \Lambda = I + B$.

An obvious subgroup is $H = \lbrace \Lambda^k, \ k \in \mathbb Z \rbrace$

Any advise or web pointer would be appreciated
