How we represent a group significantly affects the speed of computations involving the group. In this talk we concentrate on permutation representations of finite groups. The aim is to present the main mathematical approaches to speeding up such computations. The focus will be on the `best’ permutation representation of a finite group and how one might use the structure of the group to find a `good’ permutation representation, though other mathematical approaches are introduced.

This talk is part of the Junior Algebra/Logic/Number Theory seminar series.
