Definition

The group, denoted \operatorname{Co}_1, is defined as the inner automorphism group of \operatorname{Co}_0 (see Conway group:Co0), which in turn is defined as the automorphism group of the Leech lattice.

Note that \operatorname{Co}_0 has a center which is isomorphic to cyclic group:Z2, with the non-identity element corresponding to the automorphism given by sending every vector to its negative. Thus, \operatorname{Co}_1 is the quotient group of \operatorname{Co}_0 by a subgroup of order two.

The group is a finite simple non-abelian group, and in fact, it is one of the 26 sporadic simple groups. It is also one of the three Conway groups.
