examplesThe group U(n).

Note that U(p)={1,2,3,,p-1} if p is primeThe following examples are not groups:

examples

The group SL(2,F)Then SL(2,F) is a group under multiplication of matrices called the special linear group.For example SL(2,Z5)

The group GL(2, Z5)

In a group G, there is only one identityelement.
