Because Pari is *vastly* faster. E.g. see this example, where Pari beats Gap by a factor of 100: sage: K.<a> = NumberField(x^5 - x - 1) sage: time _=K.galois_group(type='pari') CPU times: user 8.26 ms, sys: 3.65 ms, total: 11.9 ms Wall time: 53.5 ms sage: time _=K.galois_group(type='gap') CPU times: user 212 ms, sys: 149 ms, total: 361 ms Wall time: 5.38 s -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "sage-devel" group.
