The first week of the 3rd GAP Days is a school on representation
theory of algebras and homological algebra in GAP. The talks will

- an introduction to parallel programming in GAP, talks given by
- an introduction to the GAP-package homalg/CAP
(homological algebra and category theory in GAP), talks given by

Gutsche and Sebastian Posur,
- an introduction to the GAP-package QPA (Quivers and Path
Algebras), talks given by
Øystein Skartsæterhagen and
- an introduction to finding quivers and relations of group rings of
finite groups, talk given by Klaus Lux.
The school will be followed by a coding sprint to mutally integrate
the homalg/CAP and QPA. It will end on Wednesday the 23rd at 13:00.
