2016-05-22 03:23:35 +0200 asked a question Special Linear Group

Hello! I am having some trouble getting the list of matrices of the group SL of order 2. When I do these calculations: G=SL(2,GF(3)) print(list(G)) I get the list of elements of the special linear group or order 2 over the finite field of size 3. However, when I try G=SL(2,GF(4)) print(list(G)) the matrices appear with "z2" in them. I have noticed that this happens when the size of the field is not prime, but I don't know how to get past it.

Thank you in advance.
