ATLAS: Lyons group Ly
Order = 51765179004000000 = 2^{8}.3^{7}.5^{6}.7.11.31.37.67.
Mult = 1.
Out = 1.
Standard generators of the Lyons group Ly are a and b where
a has order 2, b is in class 5A, ab has order 14 and
abababb has order 67.
To find standard generators for Ly:

Find any element x of order 2 by taking a suitable power of any element of even order.

Find any element of order 20, 25 or 40. This powers up to a 5Aelement, y say.

Find a conjugate a of x and a conjugate b of y, whose product has order 14,
such that abababb has order 67.
The representations of Ly available are:
 a and
b as
2480 × 2480 matrices over GF(4).
 a and
b as
651 × 651 matrices over GF(3).
 a and
b as
111 × 111 matrices over GF(5).
 a and
b as
517 × 517 matrices over GF(5)  kindly provided by K. Lux.
The maximal subgroups of Ly are:
A set of generators for the maximal cyclic subgroups can be obtained
by running this program on the standard
generators. All conjugacy classes can therefore be obtained as suitable
powers of these elements.
Problems of algebraic conjugacy are not yet dealt with.
