Function type

MaximalSubgroups is a GAP function that takes as input one argument representing a group and outputs a list of groups.


The command takes as input a group and outputs the list of all its maximal subgroups. It works only for finite groups.

  • If the argument is a finite group, the function returns a list of the maximal subgroups.
  • If the argument is an infinite group or is not a group at all, the function returns a NoMethodFound error.
