Quivers and Path Algebras

The GAP4 deposited package QPA extends the GAP functionality for computations with finite dimensional quotients of path algebras. QPA has data structures for quivers, quotients of path algebras, representations of quivers with relations and complexes of modules. Basic operations on representations of quivers are implemented as well as contructing minimal projective resolutions of modules (using using linear algebra). A not necessarily minimal projective resolution constructed by using Groebner basis theory and a paper by Green-Solberg-Zacharia, "Minimal projective resolutions", has been implemented. A goal is to have a test for finite representation type. This work has started, but there is a long way left. Part of this work is to implement/port the functionality and data structures that was available in CREP.
