This group, denoted \operatorname{Co}_0 or 2 \cdot \operatorname{Co}_1, is defined in the following equivalent ways:

  1. It is the automorphism group of the Leech lattice.
  2. It is the Schur covering group (specifically, it is a double cover) of Conway group:Co1.

Its center is cyclic group:Z2 and the inner automorphism group is Conway group:Co1.

Item Value
degrees of irreducible representations over a splitting field (such as \overline{\mathbb{Q}} or \mathbb{C}) too long to list, see Linear representation theory of Conway group:Co0#GAP implementation
number: 167, sum of squares: 8315553613086720000, maximum: 1021620600, quasirandom degree: 24

GAP implementation

The group itself is too large to be constructed, stored and manipulated in GAP. However, information about its linear representation theory and character table is stored under the symbol "2.Co1" -- for more on this, see Linear representation theory of Conway group:Co0#GAP implementation.
