GAP is a computer algebra system for computational discrete algebra developed to solve problems in algebraic structures. It provides a high-level programming language with specialized commands for computing with mathematical objects like groups, rings, fields and algebras. GAP can handle large computational problems because it optimizes the underlying algorithms based on theoretical knowledge of these structures. The system offers command-line interaction as well as flexible scripting capabilities.
