This article is about a particular group, i.e., a group unique upto isomorphism. View specific information (such as linear representation theory, subgroup structure) about this groupView a complete list of particular groups (this is a very huge list!)[SHOW MORE]

## Definition

The group is defined as the group, under matrix multiplication, of matrices over , the ring of integers, having determinant .

In other words, it is the group with underlying set:

This is the degree two case of a special linear group over integers and hence of a special linear group. It is also a special case of a special linear group of degree two.

## GAP implementation

The group can be defined as:

SL(2,Integers)
