In this thesis we study a sporadic simple group M ( 22 ) of order 64,561,751, 6 54,400 = 2 17 .39.5 2.7. .1.13 . defined by 13. Fischer [3]. In chapter I most of the material needed from other sources is presented. For example, in §1 we outline results from the paper "Finite groups generated by 3-trallspositions" recently written by B. Fischer [3]. * In chapter II we deal with the calculation of the character tables of PSU(5,2), P8U(6,2), PSΩ+(6,3) PSΩ(7,3) and M(22). In chapter III a characterization of M(22) by the structure of the centralizer of' one of' its involutions is given. The involution is not the involution central in the Sylow 2-subgroup but is a 3-transposition.
