# Questions tagged [sporadic-groups]

A sporadic group is one of the 26 exceptional groups found in the classification of finite simple groups. All the other finite simple groups form 18 infinite families numbered by q - power of prime number and n - natural number. Sporadic groups attach attention due to their sporadic/exceptional nature - similar to exceptional Lie groups. The first sporadic groups were found by Mathieu in 1860s. The last sporadic group J4 was discovered in 1975 by Janko.
