Basic arithmetic functions

Function Value Similar groups Explanation for function value
order (number of elements, equivalently, cardinality or size of underlying set) 144 groups with same order As \Gamma A(1,q), q = p^r, q = 9, p = 3, r = 2: rq(q - 1) = 2(9)(9 - 1) = 144

Arithmetic functions of a counting nature

Function Value Similar groups Explanation for function value
number of conjugacy classes 9 groups with same order and number of conjugacy classes | groups with same number of conjugacy classes As \Gamma A(1,p^2), p = 3: p(p + 3)/2 = 3(3 + 3)/2 = 9


Important subgroups include Mathieu group:M9 and general affine group:GA(1,9).

GAP implementation

Group ID

This finite group has order 144 and has ID 182 among the groups of order 144 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are 197 groups of order 144. It can thus be defined using GAP's SmallGroup function as:


For instance, we can use the following assignment in GAP to create the group and name it G:

gap> G := SmallGroup(144,182);

Conversely, to check whether a given group G is in fact the group we want, we can use GAP's IdGroup function:

IdGroup(G) = [144,182]

or just do:


to have GAP output the group ID, that we can then compare to what we want.
