y: ted writing the program around 1990 when Kenneth Almquist posted a file ng tables of all groups of order 1-16. The tables had been generated by a r program, apparently as a programming exercise (Almquist did not seem to have round in group theory). He did not discuss the algorithm he was using, but I it used backtracking as we discussed in class. Readers of the original posting out that he gave too many tables of some of the orders. In a subsequent posting, cted the errors (saying that his isomorphism routine had failed to detect hisms of some of the tables). I became curious about what one would need to out groups to be able to detect the duplications in the original tables. This led to a eliminary program to extract information from the group tables.
