This group is a finite group defined in the following equivalent ways:

  1. It is the projective special linear group of degree three over field:F9, denoted PSL(3,9).
  2. It is the special linear group of degree three over field:F9, denoted SL(3,9).
  3. It is the projective general linear group of degree three over field:F9, denoted PGL(3,9).

Equivalence of definitions

The equivalence of definitions follows from isomorphism between linear groups when degree power map is bijective.

Arithmetic functions

Basic arithmetic functions

Function Value Similar groups Explanation
order (number of elements, equivalently, cardinality or size of underlying set) 42456960 groups with same order As SL(3,q), q = 9: q^3(q^3 - 1)(q^2 - 1) = 9^3(9^3 - 1)(9^2 - 1) = (729)(728)(80) = 42456960
exponent of a group 21840 groups with same order and exponent of a group | groups with same exponent of a group
Frattini length 1 groups with same order and Frattini length | groups with same Frattini length As the group is a simple non-abelian group, its Frattini length must be one.
