GAP is a system for computational discrete algebra, with particular emphasis on Computational Group Theory. GAP provides a programming language, a library of thousands of functions implementing algebraic algorithms written in the GAP language as well as large data libraries of algebraic objects. GAP is used in research and teaching for studying groups and their representations, rings, vector spaces, algebras, combinatorial structures, and more. GAP is developed by international cooperation. The system, including source, is distributed freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License. You can study and easily modify or extend GAP for your special use. The current version is GAP 4, the older version GAP 3 is still available.

GiANT is a graphical interface for working with number fields. It dynamically provides the user with typeset information, diagrams, and drag-and-drop functionality. The result is a level of human-computer interaction which is difficult to achieve in a shell environment. GiANT is written in Java 1.4 and runs on top of the computer algebra system KASH 2.5.
