ATLAS: Unitary group U3(4)

Order = 62400 =
Mult = 1.
Out = 4.

The following information is available for U3(4):

Standard generators

Standard generators of U3(4) are a and b where a has order 2, b has order 3 and ab has order 13.

Standard generators of U3(4):2 are c and d where c has order 2, d has order 3, cd has order 8, cdcdd has order 13 and cdcdcdcddcdcddcdd has order 10.
NB: Of course, c is in class 2B.

Standard generators of U3(4):4 are e and f where e is in class 2A, f is in class 4B or 4B', ef has order 12 and efefffeff has order 6.
NB: These conditions distinguish between classes 4B and 4B'. Classes 4B and 4B' are the classes for which the ATLAS class 4B is proxy.
With these conditions, f is conjugate to the *2 automorphism.


A generating outer automorphism of U3(4) may be obtained by mapping (a, b) to ((ab)-2a(ab)2, (ab-1)-5b(ab-1)5).
An outer automorphism of U3(4) of order 2 is given by mapping (a, b) to (a, b-1)


Presentations of U3(4), U3(4):2 and U3(4):4 in terms of their standard generators are given below.

< a, b | a2 = b3 = (ab)13 = [a, b]5 = [a, babab]3 = 1 >.

< c, d | c2 = d3 = (cd)8 = [c, d]13 = [c, dcdcdcd-1cdcd]2 = [c, d-1cdcd]5 = 1 >.

< e, f | e2 = f4 = (ef)12 = [e, f]5 = (ef2)10 = efefef2efef2ef-1ef2efefef-1ef2ef-1ef2 = 1 >.

These presentations are available in Magma format as follows:
U3(4) on a and b, U3(4):2 on c and d and U3(4):4 on e and f.
