Nature of problem:
Irreducible representation manipulations are needed in a wide number of physical arguments, such as high energy particle physics, supergravity theories, grand unification models.
The Dynkin technique for manipulating Lie algebra irreps is used. A sophisticated dynamic allocation scheme allows our program to use memory only when really needed.
The limit on the application of our program is related to the dimension of the irreducible representations needed when computing tensor products; this limit is dependent on the hardware, as dynamic allocation does not set software bounds to the size of data.
