Description: CARAT is a computer package which handles enumeration, construction, recognition, and comparison problems for crystallographic groups up to dimension 6. The name CARAT itself is an acronym for Crystallographic AlgoRithms And Tables. CARAT is a compilation of various programs written in C developed under HP-UX and Linux, and should be portable to most Unices. In particular CARAT does not come together with an environment, but relies on the ordinary unixes shell and files for input and output. This is one of the points which distiguishes CARAT from most other packages for computer algebra, like GAP. If you would like such a user interface, the current version of GAP comes with an interface to CARAT, which enables one to use the most important functions of CARAT, but not all. Computer algebra system (CAS).
