construct a permutation group isomorphic to a general unitary group
a positive integer
power of a prime number
The general unitary group GU⁡n,q (often denoted by U⁡n,q) is the group of all n×n matrices over the field with q2 elements, where q is a prime power, that respect a fixed nondegenerate sesquilinear form.
The GeneralUnitaryGroup( n, q ) command returns a permutation group isomorphic to the general unitary group GU⁡n,q .
If either, or both, of n and q is non-numeric, then a symbolic group representing the general unitary group is returned.
The command GU(n, q) is provided as an alias.
In the Standard Worksheet interface, you can insert this group into a document or worksheet by using the Group Constructors palette.
Here is a general formula for the order of the general unitary group of dimension n over a field of order q.
The GroupTheory[GeneralUnitaryGroup] command was introduced in Maple 17.

The GroupTheory[GeneralUnitaryGroup] command was updated in Maple 2020.
