GAP Package MajoranaAlgebras

MajoranaAlgebras is a package for constructing Majorana representations of finite groups. It also offers some functions to calculate with a constructed Majorana representation. The main constructive functions use the algorithm described in the preprint Constructing Majorana Representations ( by Markus Pfeiffer and Madeleine Whybrow.

The current version of this package is version 1.4, released on 2018-12-06. For more information, please refer to the package manual. There is also a README file.
