ATLAS: Alternating group A_{13}
Order = 3113510400 = 2^{9}.3^{5}.5^{2}.7.11.13.
Mult = 2.
Out = 2.
Standard generators of A_{13} are a and b where a
is in class 3A, b has order 11 and ab has order 13.
In the natural representation we may take
a = (1, 2, 3) and
b = (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).
Standard generators of the double cover 2.A_{13} are preimages
A and B where A has order 3 and B has order 11.
Standard generators of S_{13} are c and d where c
is in class 2D, d is in class 12M and cd has order 13.
In the natural representation we may take
c = (1, 2) and
d = (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13).
Standard generators of either of the double covers 2.S_{13} are
preimages C and D where CD has order 13.
An outer automorphism of A_{13} of order 2 may be obtained by mapping (a, b) to (a^{1}, b).
In the natural representations given here, this outer automorphism is conjugation by c. We may then obtain d as d = bac.
Conversely, we have a = cd^{1}cd = [c, d] and b = dcd^{1}cdc.
Presentations of A_{13} and S_{13} on their standard generators are given below.
< a, b  a^{3} = a^{11} = (ab)^{13} = (aa^{b})^{2} = (ab^{2}ab^{2})^{2} = (ab^{3}ab^{3})^{2} = (ab^{4}ab^{4})^{2} = (ab^{5}ab^{5})^{2} = 1 >.
< c, d  c^{2} = d^{12} = (cd)^{13} = [c, d]^{3} = [c, dcd]^{2} = [c, (cd)^{3}]^{2} = [c, (cd)^{4}]^{2} = [c, (cd)^{5}]^{2} = 1 >.
