ATLAS: Linear group L_{2}(11)
Order = 660 = 2^{2}.3.5.11.
Mult = 2.
Out = 2.
The following information is available for L_{2}(11):
Standard generators of L_{2}(11) are a and b where
a has order 2, b has order 3 and ab has order 11.
Standard generators of the double cover 2.L_{2}(11) =
SL_{2}(11) are preimages A and B
where B has order 3 and AB has order 11.
Standard generators of L_{2}(11):2 = PGL_{2}(11) are
c and d where
c is in class 2B, d has order 3, cd has order 10 and cdcdd has order 11. These conditions imply that cd is in class 10A.
Standard generators of either double cover 2.L_{2}(11).2 = 2.PGL_{2}(11) are preimages C and D where
D has order 3.
Presentations for L_{2}(11) and L_{2}(11):2 = PGL_{2}(11) in terms of their standard generators are given below.
< a, b  a^{2} = b^{3} = (ab)^{11} = [a, babab]^{2} = 1 >.
< c, d  c^{2} = d^{3} = (cd)^{10} = (cdcdcd^{−1})^{4} = [c, dcdcd^{−1}cd^{−1}cd^{−1}cdcd] = 1 >.
We have < c, d  c^{2} = d^{3} = (cd)^{10} =
(cdcdcd^{−1})^{4} = 1 > = (3 × L_{2}(11)):2 (with trivial centre).
To quotient out the normal 3, we can add a relation such as [c, d]^{11} = 1, though
the shortest such relation (when written in terms of c, d, c^{−1},
d^{−1}) is
[c, dcdcd^{−1}cd^{−1}cd^{−1}cdcd] = 1,
which we have used above.
