Cyclic Group C_9

The cyclic group C_9 is one of the two Abelian groups of group order 9 (the other order-9 Abelian group being C_3×C_3; there are no non-Abelian groups of order 9). An example is the integers modulo 9 under addition (Z_9). No modulo multiplication group is isomorphic to C_9. Like all cyclic groups, C_9 is Abelian.


The cycle graph of C_9 is shown above. The cycle index is


Its multiplication table is illustrated above.

The numbers of elements satisfying A^i=1 for i=1, 2, ..., 9 are 1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 9.

Because the group is Abelian, each element is in its own conjugacy class. There are three subgroups: {1}, {1,C,F} and {1,A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H}. Because the group is Abelian, these are all normal. Since C_9 has normal subgroups other than the trivial subgroup and the entire group, it is not a simple group.
