Standard generators

Standard generators of the group 2F4(2)' are a and b where a is in class 2A, b has order 3 and ab has order 13.

Standard generators of its automorphism group 2F4(2) = 2F4(2)'.2 are c and d where c is in class 2A, d is in class 4F, cd has order 12 and cdcddcddd has order 4.

A pair of elements conjugate to (a, b) may be obtained as a' = , b' = .
