Efficient simple groups

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

DOI

Abstract

We prove that the simple group L-3(5) which has order 372000 is efficient by providing an efficient presentation for it. This leaves one simple group with order less than one million, S-4(4) which has order 979200, whose efficiency or otherwise remains to be determined.
