TitleComputing homology using generalized Gröbner bases
Author(s) Becky Eide Hall
TypeArticle in Journal
AbstractA well-known theorem due to Manin gives a relationship between modular symbols for a congruence subgroup Γ_0(N) of SL_2(Z) and the homology of the modular curve X_0(N) , making the homology easier to compute. A corresponding theorem of Ash (1992) allows for explicit computation of the homology of congruence subgroups of SL_3(Z) with coefficients in a given representation V. Applying Ashʼs theorem requires finding the invariants of an ideal in the group algebra Z[SL_3(Z)] on V. We employ a generalized notion of Gröbner bases for a non-commutative group algebra in order to determine a minimal generating set for the desired ideal.
