Statistics at a glance

The number 36 has prime factorization 36 = 2^2 \cdot 3^2. There are only two prime factors of this number. Order has only two prime factors implies solvable (by Burnside's p^aq^b-theorem) and hence all groups of this order are solvable groups (specifically, finite solvable groups). Another way of putting this is that the order is a solvability-forcing number. In particular, there is no simple non-abelian group of this order.

Quantity Value List/comment
Number of groups up to isomorphism 14
Number of abelian groups 4 ((number of abelian groups of order 4) = 2) times ((number of abelian groups of order 9) = 2). See classification of finite abelian groups and structure theorem for finitely generated abelian groups
Number of nilpotent groups 4 ((number of groups of order 4) = 2) times ((number of groups of order 9) = 2). See equivalence of definitions of finite nilpotent group and classification of groups of prime-square order
Number of solvable groups 14 There are only two prime factors of this number. Order has only two prime factors implies solvable (by Burnside's p^aq^b-theorem) and hence all groups of this order are solvable groups (specifically, finite solvable groups). Another way of putting this is that the order is a solvability-forcing number. In particular, there is no simple non-abelian group of this order.
Number of simple groups 0 Follows from all groups of this order being solvable

GAP implementation

The order 36 is part of GAP's SmallGroup library. Hence, any group of order 36 can be constructed using the SmallGroup function by specifying its group ID. Also, IdGroup is available, so the group ID of any group of this order can be queried.

Further, the collection of all groups of order 36 can be accessed as a list using GAP's AllSmallGroups function.

Here is GAP's summary information about how it stores groups of this order, accessed using GAP's SmallGroupsInformation function:

gap> SmallGroupsInformation(36);

  There are 14 groups of order 36.
  They are sorted by their Frattini factors.
     1 has Frattini factor [ 6, 1 ].
     2 has Frattini factor [ 6, 2 ].
     3 has Frattini factor [ 12, 3 ].
     4 has Frattini factor [ 12, 4 ].
     5 has Frattini factor [ 12, 5 ].
     6 has Frattini factor [ 18, 3 ].
     7 has Frattini factor [ 18, 4 ].
     8 has Frattini factor [ 18, 5 ].
     9 - 14 have trivial Frattini subgroup.

  For the selection functions the values of the following attributes
  are precomputed and stored:
     IsAbelian, IsNilpotentGroup, IsSupersolvableGroup, IsSolvableGroup,
     LGLength, FrattinifactorSize and FrattinifactorId.

  This size belongs to layer 2 of the SmallGroups library.
  IdSmallGroup is available for this size.
