Group Explorer is a piece of software for visualizing the mathematical objects known as groups. Here are some places you might want to get started:

What to read first

Beginners' tips

  • The group library is the main window of Group Explorer and shows all loaded groups. Try double-clicking them to learn more about them.
  • If you need help, each window has help buttons on its toolbar, and a help menu at the top. This window is a typical help window. Search help from the menu or toolbar above.
  • Group Explorer is all about visualization. To get to some of the cool pictures, double-click a group and then click one of the pictures you see. Or try one of these links:

New features

Old features gone away

  • You can no longer open groups, because all groups are opened at startup. If you do not see a group you hoped to, read about how groups are loaded.
  • The navigator and history view are no longer present, because sheets and connecting morphisms will soon make them obsolete
