Henrik Bäärnhielm

I am a PhD student in computational group theory at the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queen Mary, University of London. My supervisor is Charles R. Leedham-Green. Since my research is interdisciplinary, a mixture of mathematics and computer science, I have a secondary supervisor, Pengwei Hao at the Department of Computer Science. More specifically, I work on the matrix recognition project, in which we try to develop efficient algorithms for computing with matrix groups over finite fields, where the groups are given by a set of generators. The aim is also to make practical implementations of all the algorithms, primarily for the Magma system, but possibly also for the GAP system.

Publications and preprints


I have produced some software packages for Magma and GAP that deal with matrix groups. Hopefully they will all at some point be included in the main Magma and GAP distributions, but until then they can be found here.
