The number 672 has prime factors 2, 3, and 7. The prime factorization is as follows:

There are both solvable and non-solvable groups of this order. The only possible simple non-abelian composition factor is projective special linear group:PSL(3,2) of order 168, and thus every non-solvable group has composition factors: two copies of cyclic group:Z2 and one copy of .

Total number of groups up to isomorphism | 1280 | |

Total number of abelian groups (i.e., finite abelian groups) up to isomorphism | 7 | (number of abelian groups of order ) (number of abelian groups of order ) (number of abelian groups of order ) = (number of unordered integer partitions of 5) (number of unordered integer partitions of 1) (number of unordered integer partitions of 1) = . See classification of finite abelian groups and structure theorem for finitely generated abelian groups. |

Total number of nilpotent groups (i.e., finite nilpotent groups) up to isomorphism | 51 | (number of groups of order 32) (number of groups of order 3) (number of groups of order 7) = . See number of nilpotent groups equals product of number of groups of order each maximal prime power divisor, which in turn follows from equivalence of definitions of finite nilpotent group. |

Number of supersolvable groups up to isomorphism | 1134 | |

Total number of solvable groups (i.e., finite solvable groups) up to isomorphism | 1272 | |

Number of simple groups up to isomorphism | 0 | |

Number of almost simple groups up to isomorphism | 0 | |

Number of quasisimple groups up to isomorphism | 0 | |

Number of almost quasisimple groups up to isomorphism | 2 | IDs (672, 1044) and (672, 1045). Both are Schur covering groups for PGL(2,7) and both have SL(2,7) as a normal subgroup of index two. |

Number of perfect groups up to isomorphism | 0 |

## GAP implementation

The order 672 is part of GAP's SmallGroup library. Hence, any group of order 672 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 672 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:

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.
