Documentation Build Status GitHub Actions


The Julia package CapAndHomalg provides simplified access to the repositories of the GAP packages hosted on the GitHub organization homalg-project, most of which are based on the

These are open source GAP multi-package projects for constructive category theory and homological algebra with applications to module theory of commutative and non-commutative algebras and algebraic geometry.


Install Julia

To install Julia follow the first Steps 0 and 1 on our installation page.

Install CapAndHomalg.jl

Then start julia in a terminal and add the package CapAndHomalg:

julia> using Pkg; Pkg.add("CapAndHomalg")

julia> using CapAndHomalg

For more information on the included GAP packages see the documentation.

The correctness of the installation and the availability of the functionality can at any time be tested using

julia> using Pkg; Pkg.test("CapAndHomalg")

After each update of the Julia package GAP a rebuild is (probably) necessary:

julia> using Pkg;"CapAndHomalg")

Software dependency

CapAndHomalg relies on the

computer algebra systems through the Julia packages
GAP Gap.jl
Singular Singular_jll.jl

all of which are components of the computer algebra system OSCAR.

Some of the bundled packages use the GAP packages

and the

third party software through the GAP packages and the Julia packages
Graphviz dot-format generating code like in Digraphs Graphviz_jll.jl
4ti2 4ti2Interface lib4ti2_jll.jl
