List of numbers in group theory

Orders of non-abelian simple groups

This list contains finite non-abelian simple groups with unusual properties, such as:

  1. Its order has at most four distinct prime factors, or is a powerful number;
  2. the p-Sylow group (where p = 2 for alternating groups) is not the largest Sylow subgroup; and/or
  3. there is an exceptional isomorphism, outer automorphism group, or Schur multiplier.

Sporadic groups have their own section.
