Minimal embeddings of small finite groups

Robert Heffernan, Brendan McCann

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We determine the groups of minimal order in which all groups of order n can embedded for 1 ≤ n ≤ 15. We further determine the minimal order of a group in which all groups of order n or less can be embedded, also for 1 ≤ n ≤ 15.
