ABSTRACT

The Leech lattice is a remarkable lattice in 24dimensional Euclidean
space. Its symmetry group (modulo its center Z/2Z) is
the sporadic simple group Co_2, with order around 8*10^15. We will
explain an algorithm for quickly detecting whether two lattice vectors
are equivalent under a symmetry.
