A simple group of Ree type is a finite simple non-Abelian group satisfying the following conditions:

  • It has an Abelian Sylow 2-subgroup
  • It contains an involution t such that

C_G(t) = <t> \times PSL(2,q)

where q > 5.

The case q = 5 corresponds instead to the Janko group (since PSL(2,5) = A_5).
