The Higman-Sims group is a sporadic finite simple group of order equal to 44352000. It was discovered in 1967 by Donald Higman and Charles Sims as the subgroup of index 2 in the automorphism group of the Higman-Sims graph. It was independently re-discovered by Graham Higman in 1969.
The HigmanSimsGroup() command returns a permutation group (default), or a finitely presented group, isomorphic to the Higman-Sims group.
