5 (iii)), an element from Q 1 centralizes Z 2 if its image under χ is contained in ¯ (23) and it permutes x and y (centralizing z) otherwise. Put G s2 = C G 1 (Z 2 ), R2 = χ −1 ( ¯ (12) ), and Q 2 = O2 (G s2 ). 1 The following assertions hold: (i) G s2 is the only index 2 subgroup in G 12 , G s2 = [G 12 , G 12 ], and G s2 is perfect; (ii) Z 2 is the preimage in G 12 of Z (G 12 /Z 1 ) = Z (G s2 /Z 1 ), in particular Z 2 is characteristic in both G 12 and G s2 ; (iii) Q 2 ∩ Q 1 = χ −1 ( ¯ (23) ) and Q 1 Q 2 = O2 (G 12 ); (iv) G s2 /Q 2 ∼ = F/E ∼ = M24 ; = G 12 /O2 (G 12 ) ∼ s (v) Z 2 = Z (Q 2 ) = Z (G 2 ); (vi) R2 is an elementary abelian self-centralizing normal subgroup in G 12 of order 213 ; (vii) Q 2 centralizes R2 /Z 2 , while G s2 /Q 2 ∼ = M24 acts on R2 /Z 2 as on the ∗ ; irreducible Todd module C11 (viii) Q 2 induces on R2 the subgroup of G L(R2 ) generated by all the transvections where the centres are in Z 2 and the axes contain Z 2 ; (ix) G s2 /R2 splits over Q 2 /R2 .
The mapping η is not a homomorphism of modules but it is a coboundary associated with an extension of V1\4 by H and it will play an important role in the subsequent exposition. 3). Then: (i) W24 = C W24 (X ) ⊕ [W24 , X ] is an orthogonal decomposition with respect to β p ; (ii) both summands in (i) are non-singular 12-dimensional orthogonal spaces of plus type with respect to the restricted forms; (iii) the H -submodule in [W24 , X ] and a direct summand of C W24 (X ) isomorphic to V1\4\1 are totally singular.
The following lemma describes the action of E ∼ = C11 on ¯ : ∗ . 5 Let w, u ∈ C12 and let v ∗ ∈ C12 1 ε(w) : ω(u, 0) → ω(u + ( |u ∩ w| mod 2) P, (u ∩ w)∗ ), 2 ε(w) : ω(0, v ∗ ) → ω((|v| mod 2) w + (|w ∩ v| mod 2) P, v ∗ ) and on the whole of ¯ the action extends by linearity. It is easily seen from the above lemma that the actions on ¯ of ε(w) and ε(P \ w) coincide, so that E 0 acts as C11 ∼ = C12 / P . 5)) describes the composition series of ¯ as a module for the monomial subgroup F = E K ∼ = C11 : M24 .
