Definition

This group, termed the triple cover of alternating group:A7, and denoted 3 \cdot A_7, is defined in the following equivalent ways:

  1. It is the unique quasisimple group whose center is isomorphic to cyclic group:Z3 and inner automorphism group is alternating group:A7.
  2. It is the quotient of the Schur cover of alternating group:A7 by a subgroup of order two inside its center (which is isomorphic to cyclic group:Z6).
