On the dimension of matrix representations of finitely generated torsion free nilpotent groups

  • Maggie Habeeb EMAIL logo and Delaram Kahrobaei


It is well known that any polycyclic group, and hence any finitely generated nilpotent group, can be embedded into for an appropriate ; that is, each element in the group has a unique matrix representation. An algorithm to determine this embedding was presented in [J. Algebra 300 (2006), 376–383]. In this paper, we determine the complexity of the crux of the algorithm and the dimension of the matrices produced as well as provide a modification of the algorithm presented in [J. Algebra 300 (2006), 376–383].
