Abstract: A recent form of the Todd-Coxeter algorithm, known as the lookahead algorithm, is described. The time and space requirements for this algorithm are shown experimentally to be usually either equivalent or superior to the Felsch and Haselgrove-Leech-Trotter algorithms. Some findings from an experimental study of the behaviour of Todd-Coxeter programs in a variety of situations are given.
