Definition

This is the Mathieu group of degree 23, denoted M_{23}, and is the subgroup of the symmetric group of degree 24 generated by the following permutations:

M_{23} := \langle (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23), (3,17,10,7,9)(4,13,14,19,5)(8,18,11,12,23)(15,20,22,21,16)\rangle
