A Computational Approach to the Conjugacy Problem

Very recent work by Boyle and Steinberg has shown that certain equivalence problems for C* algebras are decidable. This means that, in principle, an algorithm exists which can determine if these equivalences hold and that this algorithm will finish execution in a finite number of calculations. Such an algorithm was described in abstract terms by Grunewald to solve the ‘conjugacy problem’. There is no implementation of Grunewald’s algorithm. This project aims to describe Grunewald’s algorithm in pseudo-code and then implement it, in part or in full. In particular, this project will focus on the special case of the conjugacy problem over the general linear group.
