Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

A_8 = SL_2(4) and acts on F_2[x_1, ..., x_4]. There are two copies of A_5 inside A_8. This is the Poincare series (or Molien series) for the subgroup A_5 acting on F_2[x_1, ..., x_4] by tensoring over F_2 from the action of S_5 on Z^4 where Z^4 consists of those elements (n_1, ..., n_5) with Sum n_i = 0. That is, A_5 acts on the sub-ring F_2[x_1 - x_5, x_2 - x_5, x_3 - x_5, x_4 - x_5] \subset F_2[x_1, \dots, x_5] by restriction to A_5 of the permutation S_5 action. See A089596 for the other A_5.
