Dear Forum, Dear Dr. Rajeevsarathy, The subgroup you give cannot have index 2, as it is easy to find larger index in finite quotient images. (In fact I think the index is infinite.) Is there possibly a misprint in group or realtors, or why do you think the index should be 2?
(The error message you get is indicating that coset enumeration did not succeed. One can type `return;’ to try with more memory, but of course it can never terminate if the index is infinite.)
