Let G be a semidirect product of finitely generated Abelian groups. We provide a method for constructing an explicit contraction (special homotopy equivalence) from the reduced bar construction of the group ring of G, $${\overline{B}(\mathsf{\textstyle Z\kern-0.4em Z}[G])}$$ , to a much smaller DGA-module hG. Such a contraction is called a homological model for G and is used as the input datum in the methods described in Álvarez et al. (J Symb Comput 44:558–570, 2009; 2012) for calculating a… Expand

Formal Orthogonal Pairs via Monomial Representations and Cohomology
A Formal Orthogonal Pair is a pair $(A,B)$ of symbolic rectangular matrices such that $AB^T=0$. It can be applied for the construction of Hadamard and Weighing matrices. In this paper we introduce aExpand

Homology of iterated semidirect products of free groups
Abstract Let G be a group which admits the structure of an iterated semidirect product of finitely generated free groups. We construct a finite, free resolution of the integers over the group ring ofExpand

Computing Resolutions Over Finite p-Groups
A uniform and constructive approach for the computation of resolutions and for (co)homology computations for any finite p-group is detailed. The resolutions we construct ([32]) are, as vector spaces,Expand
Computing the homology of groups: The geometric way
This work has developed some algorithms which, making use of the effective homology method, construct the homology groups of Eilenberg-MacLane spaces K(G,1) for different groups G, allowing one in particular to determine the homological groups of G. Expand

Abstract In this paper we provide a method of explicitly determining, for a given finite group G and finitely generated G -module U trivial under the action of G , a representative for each elementExpand
Perturbation Theory in Differential Homological Algebra II
Perturbation theory is a particularly useful way to obtain relatively small differential complexes representing a given chain homotopy type. An important part of the theory is “the basic perturbationExpand
The twisted Eilenberg-Zilber Theorem
The purpose of this paper is to give a simpler proof of a theorem of E.H. Brown [Bro59], that if F → E → B is a fibre space, then there is a differential on the graded group X = C(B) ⊗Λ C(F ) suchExpand
Cocyclic Development of Designs
AbstractWe present the basic theory of cocyclic development of designs, in which group development over a finite group G is modified by the action of a cocycle defined on G × G. Negacyclic andExpand
