Definition

This group, termed the Schur cover of alternating group:A7 and sometimes denoted 6 \cdot A_7, is defined in the following equivalent ways:

  1. It is the unique quasisimple group with center cyclic group:Z6 and quotient group alternating group:A7.
  2. It is the Schur covering group of alternating group:A7.
