- List of small groups
The following list in

mathematics contains thefinite group s of small orderup to group isomorphism .The list can be used to determine which known group a given finite group "G" is isomorphic to: first determine the order of "G", then look up the candidates for that order in the list below. If you know whether "G" is abelian or not, some candidates can be eliminated right away. To distinguish between the remaining candidates, look at the orders of your group's elements, and match it with the orders of the candidate group's elements.

**Glossary*** Z

_{"n"}: thecyclic group of order "n" (often the notation "C"_{"n"}is used, or Z/"n"Z).

* Dih_{"n"}: thedihedral group of order 2"n" (often the notation "D"_{"n"}or "D"_{2"n"}is used )

* "S"_{"n"}: thesymmetric group of degree "n", containing the "n"!permutation s of "n" elements.

* "A"_{"n"}: thealternating group of degree "n", containing the "n"!/2even permutation s of "n" elements.

* Dic_{"n"}: thedicyclic group of order 4"n".The notations Z

_{"n"}and Dih_{"n"}have the advantage thatpoint groups in three dimensions "C"_{"n"}and "D"_{"n"}do not have the same notation. There are moreisometry group s than these two, of the same abstract group type.The notation "G" × "H" stands for the direct product of the two groups; "G"

^{"n"}denotes the direct product of a group with itself "n" times. "G" ⋊ "H" stands for asemidirect product where "H" acts on "G"; where the particular action of "H" on "G" is omitted, it is because all possible non-trivial actions result in the same product group,up to isomorphism .Abelian and

simple group s are noted. (For groups of order "n" < 60, the simple groups are precisely the cyclic groups Z_{"n"}, where "n" is prime.) We use the equality sign ("=") to denote isomorphism.The identity element in the cycle graphs is represented by the black circle. The lowest order for which the cycle graph does not uniquely represent a group is order 16.

In the lists of subgroups the trivial group and the group itself are not listed. Where there are multiple isomorphic subgroups, their number is indicated in parentheses.

**List of small abelian groups**The finite abelian groups are easily classified: they are cyclic groups, or direct products thereof; see

computer algebra system GAP contains the "Small Groups library" which provides access to descriptions of the groups of "small" order. The groups are listedup to isomorphism. At present, the library contains the following groups:

* those of order at most 2000 except for order 1024 (423 164 062 groups, the ones of order 1024 had to be skipped, there are alone 49 487 365 422 (up to isomorphism) 2-groups of order 1024.);

* those of order 5^{5}and 7^{4}(92 groups);

* those of order "q"^{"n"}×"p" where "q"^{"n"}divides 2^{8}, 3^{6}, 5^{5}or 7^{4}and "p" is an arbitrary prime which differs from "q";

* those whose order factorises into at most 3 primes.It contains explicit descriptions of the available groups in computer readable format.The library has been constructed and prepared by Hans Ulrich Besche, Bettina Eick and Eamonn O'Brien; see http://www.tu-bs.de/~hubesche/small.html .
