Hecke

About

Hecke is a software package for algebraic number theory maintained by Claus Fieker, Tommy Hofmann and Carlo Sircana. It is written in julia and is based on the computer algebra packages Nemo and AbstractAlgebra.

So far, Hecke provides the following features:

  • Number fields (absolute, relative, simple and non-simple)
  • Orders and ideals in number fields
  • Class and unit group computations of orders
  • Lattice enumeration
  • Sparse linear algebra
  • Class field theory
  • Abelian groups
  • Associative algebras
  • Ideals and orders in (semsimple) associative algebras
  • Locally free class groups of orders in semisimple algebras

Installation

To use Hecke, a julia version of 1.0 is necessary (the latest stable julia version will do). Please see http://julialang.org/downloads for instructions on how to obtain julia for your system. Once a suitable julia version is installed, use the following steps at the julia prompt to install Hecke:

julia> using Pkg
julia> Pkg.add("Hecke")

Citing Hecke

If your research depends on computations done with Hecke, please consider giving us a formal citation:
