# ATLAS of Finite Groups

The ATLAS of Finite Groups, often simply known as the ATLAS, is a group theory book by John Horton Conway, , Simon Phillips Norton, Richard Alan Parker and Robert Arnott Wilson (with computational assistance from J. G. Thackray), published in December 1985 by Oxford University Press and reprinted with corrections in 2003 (ISBN 978-0-19-853199-9). It lists basic information about 93 finite simple groups, the information being generally: its order, Schur multiplier, outer automorphism group, various constructions (such as presentations), conjugacy classes of maximal subgroups (with characters group action they define), and, most importantly, character tables (including power maps on the conjugacy classes) of the group itself and bicyclic extensions given by stem extensions and automorphism groups. In certain cases (such as for the Chevalley groups ), the character table is not listed and only basic information is given. The ATLAS is a recognizable large format book (sized 420mm by 300mm) with a cherry red cardboard cover and spiral binding. The names of the authors, all six letters long, with initials for the first and second letter, are printed on the cover in the form of an array which evokes the idea of a character table. The ATLAS is being continued in the form of an electronic database, the ATLAS of Finite Group Representations. * v * t * e (Wikipedia).

Abstract Algebra - 11.1 Fundamental Theorem of Finite Abelian Groups

We complete our study of Abstract Algebra in the topic of groups by studying the Fundamental Theorem of Finite Abelian Groups. This tells us that every finite abelian group is a direct product of cyclic groups of prime-power order. Video Chapters: Intro 0:00 Before the Fundamental Theorem

Order of Elements in a Group | Abstract Algebra

We introduce the order of group elements in this Abstract Algebra lessons. We'll see the definition of the order of an element in a group, several examples of finding the order of an element in a group, and we will introduce two basic but important results concerning distinct powers of ele

Abstract Algebra - 3.1 Finite Groups and Subgroups: Terminology and Notation

Most of this chapter will revolve around the idea of a subgroup. However, we must begin by being able to differentiate between a finite group and infinite group. We look at some notation and definitions (order of a group, order of an element) before jumping into subgroups. Video Chapters:

Definition of a group Lesson 24

In this video we take our first look at the definition of a group. It is basically a set of elements and the operation defined on them. If this set of elements and the operation defined on them obey the properties of closure and associativity, and if one of the elements is the identity el

What is a Group? | Abstract Algebra

Welcome to group theory! In today's lesson we'll be going over the definition of a group. We'll see the four group axioms in action with some examples, and some non-examples as well which violate the axioms and are thus not groups. In a fundamental way, groups are structures built from s
