Veronica Kelsey, Peter Rowley

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    An octad triple is a set of three octads, octads being the blocks of the S(5, 8, 24) Steiner system. In this paper we determine the orbits of M24, the largest Mathieu group, upon the set of octad triples.
