Dear forum,

I read the sentence

order 2 in PSL(2,q)"
What does mean "H is inverted by an Element"
perhaps the explanation is possible in German.

H is cyclic group of order (q-1)/2 (q odd) or q-1 (q even).
Thus, "inverting H" most probably means inverting a generator of H.
This "Element" then sends each element of H to its inverse.
