We describe two methods for computing with the elements of untwisted groups of Lie type: using the Steinberg presentation and using highest weight representations. We give algorithms for element arithmetic within the Steinberg presentation. Conversion between this presentation and linear representations is achieved using a new generalisation of row and column reduction.
