ATLAS: Linear group L_{7}(2)
Order = 163849992929280 =
2^{21}.3^{4}.5.7^{2}.31.127.
Mult = 1.
Out = 2.
The following information is available for L_{7}(2):
Standard generators of L_{7}(2) are a and b where
a is in class 2A, b has order 7 (necessarily class 7E),
ab has order 127 and ababababb has order 7.
Type I standard generators of L_{7}(2):2 are c and d
where c is in class 2A, d is in class 12H (centr.order 144),
cd has order 14 and cdcdd has order 12.
Type II standard generators of L_{7}(2):2 are e and f
where e is in class 2D, f is in class 8E/F (centr.order 92160),
ef has order ?? and efeff has order ??.
NB: Class 2A is the class of transvections (in a natural 7dimensional
representation) and class 7E is the class of 7cycles, and is the unique class
of elements of order 7 with the smallest centraliser (size 49). The centraliser
orders quoted for L_{7}(2):2 are for the
L_{7}(2):2centralisers, not the L_{7}(2)centralisers (unlike
the ATLAS). Class 2D is the unique class of outer involutions.
An outer automorphism of L_{7}(2) of order 2 may be obtained by
mapping (a, b) to
(a, b^{1}).
Let u be the given automorphism. Then we may obtain standard generators
of L_{7}(2):2 as follows:
Type I generators are given by
c = a and d =
(ab)^{4}u(ab)^{10}u(ab)^{3}u(ab)^{1}.
Type II generators are given by
e = u and f = uab.
We can return to L_{7}(2) by letting
a = fe[e, f]^{4} and
b = [e, f]^{4}. (This one is the exact inverse
of the above, not merely an inverse up to automorphisms.)
Presentations of L_{7}(2) and L_{7}(2):2 on their standard generators are given below.
