ATLAS: Alternating group A14

Order = 43589145600 = 210.35.52.72.11.13.
Mult = 2.
Out = 2.

Standard generators

Standard generators of A14 are a and b where a is in class 3A, b has order 13, ab has order 12, abb has order 24 and ababb has order 20. The last two conditions may be replaced by [a, b] has order 2.
In the natural representation we may take a = (1, 2, 3) and b = (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14).
Standard generators of the double cover 2.A14 are preimages A and B where A has order 3 and B has order 13.

Standard generators of S14 = A14:2 are c and d where c is in class 2D, d has order 13 and ab has order 14.
In the natural representation we may take c = (1, 2) and d = (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14).
Standard generators of either of the double covers 2.S14 are preimages C and D where D has order 13.

In the natural representations given here, we have a = cd-1cd = [c, d] and b = d.

Automorphisms

An outer automorphism of A14 may be realised by mapping (a, b) to (a-1, ba-1). In the natural representations given here, this outer automorphism is conjugation by c.
