In terms of M_{12}

This group, termed the Mathieu group of degree eleven and denoted M_{11} is the subgroup of the symmetric group of degree eleven defined as the isotropy subgroup of any point under the natural action of Mathieu group:M12 on the projective line over field:F11.

M_{11} is in fact a subgroup of the alternating group of degree eleven.

Relation with Mathieu groups

This is one of the five simple Mathieu groups, which form a subset of the sporadic simple groups. The parameters for the simple Mathieu groups are 11, 12, 22, 23, 24. There are also Mathieu groups for parameters 9,10, but these are not simple groups. The Mathieu group for parameter 21 is a simple group that is not a sporadic simple group; it is isomorphic to the projective special linear group:PSL(3,4).

5-Sylow: cyclic group:Z5, Sylow number is 396
11-Sylow: cyclic group:Z11, Sylow number is 144
Hall subgroups apart from the whole group, trivial subgroup, and Sylow subgroups, there exist the following Hall subgroups: \{ 2,3 \}-Hall (order 144), \{ 5, 11\}-Hall (order 55), \{2,3,5 \}-Hall (order 720)
maximal subgroups maximal subgroups of order 48, 120, 144, 660, 720
normal subgroups the group is simple non-abelian, so the only normal subgroups are the whole group and the trivial subgroup
subgroups that are simple non-abelian groups (apart from the whole group) alternating group:A5 (order 60), alternating group:A6 (order 360), projective special linear group:PSL(2,11) (order 660)

GAP implementation

The Mathieu group has order 7920. Unfortunately, GAP's SmallGroup library is not available for this order. The group can be constructed in either of these ways:
