Named Groups
Mathematica provides access to information on infinite families of groups, as well as sporadic groups of relevance, like the famous 26 sporadic simple groups (27 if the Tits group is included). In particular, Mathematica knows permutation representations for most of them, hence allowing further computation and application to other areas of the system.
Parametrized Infinite Families
SymmetricGroup symmetric group of degree
AlternatingGroup alternating group of degree
CyclicGroup cyclic group of order
DihedralGroup dihedral group of the -gon, of order
AbelianGroup Abelian group isomorphic to a direct product of several cyclic groups
