option of the form output = "list", output = "collected" (the default), or output = "multiset"
The order class profile of a finite group G is the sequence of orders of elements of G, including their multiplicities.
The OrderClassProfile( G ) command computes the order class profile of a finite group G. By default, this is returned as a list of pairs of the form [ order, multiplicity ]. The sorted list of element orders can be returned by using the 'output' = "list" option. To produce, instead, a MultiSet, use the 'output' = "multiset" option.
The OrderClassPolynomial( G, x ) command returns a polynomial encoding of the order class data of the finite group G. It is a univariate polynomial in the indeterminate x for which the coefficient of x^k is equal to the number of elements of order k in G.
The order class number of a finite group G is the number of order classes of elements of G.
The OrderClassNumber( G ) command returns the order class number of the finite group G.
