This group can be defined in the following equivalent ways:
- It is the inner holomorph of the dihedral group of order eight. In other words, it is the semidirect product of the dihedral group by its inner automorphism group, which is isomorphic to a Klein four-group.
- It is the central product of the dihedral group of order eight with itself, with the common center identified.
- it is the inner holomorph of the quaternion group. In other words, it is the semidirect product of the quaternion group by its inner automorphism group, which is isomorphic to a Klein four-group.
- It is the central product of the quaternion group of order eight with itself, with the common center identified.
- It is the extraspecial group of order and '+' type.
- It is the subgroup of upper-triangular unipotent matrix group:U(4,2) given by the matrices with only corner entries, i.e., matrices over field:F2 of the form:
The group can also be given by the presentation:
|group of prime power order||Yes|
|nilpotent group||Yes||prime power order implies nilpotent|
|supersolvable group||Yes||via nilpotent: finite nilpotent implies supersolvable|
|solvable group||Yes||via nilpotent: nilpotent implies solvable|
|directly indecomposable group||Yes|
|centrally indecomposable group||No|
This finite group has order 32 and has ID 49 among the groups of order 32 in GAP's SmallGroup library. For context, there are 51 groups of order 32. 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 :
gap> G := SmallGroup(32,49);
Conversely, to check whether a given group is in fact the group we want, we can use GAP's IdGroup function:
IdGroup(G) = [32,49]
or just do:
to have GAP output the group ID, that we can then compare to what we want.
