The book "Permutation Groups" by Dixon and Mortimer is a good reference about Mathieu Groups. BTW, a simple Wikipedia search gives you a lot of information about them, including a quite long bibliography... – PseudoNeo Apr 28 '11 at 10:29
Rotman's "Introduction to the Theory of Groups" likewise has a treatment of Mathieu groups (Chapter 9). – Arturo Magidin Apr 28 '11 at 13:07

This is what Mathieu group $M_{23}$ is. And here is a paper on it (though really, did you think that there might not ever have been a single paper published about it?)

@Grigory: This was the intended link, but I see Zev's edited it now... – J. M. Apr 28 '11 at 8:27
@J.M. I'll just use your link (I suspect I was able to see the paper using the original link as I'm on a university network). – Zev Chonoles Apr 28 '11 at 8:30
