Atlas of Lie Groups and Representations
Installing the software (Overview)


There are two primary components of the software. The core software is the Fokko executable, which has a simple command line interface. atlas is a complete programming environment for the software, with variable, loops, conditionals and other standard programming tools. Some functionality is only available in atlas.

(Starting in version 0.6: Fokko is what used to be called atlas; and atlas is what used to be called realex).

Both Fokko and atlas are written in C++, and require a C++ compiler.

This page assumes you have downloaded the software (from a tgz file, or using git), and are in the working directory, which will be (unless you renamed it): atlas_* or atlasofliegroups.
