Its multiplication table is given by:

1 | a | b | c | |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | 1 | a | b | c |

a | a | 1 | c | b |

b | b | c | 1 | a |

c | c | b | a | 1 |

It may be visualized as the symmetry group of a rectangle:

************* * * *************the four elements being: the identity, the vertical reflection, the horizontal reflection, and a 180 degree rotation.

All elements of the Klein group (except the identity) have order 2.
It is abelian, and is isomorphic to *C*_{2} × *C*_{2}, the direct product of two copies of the cyclic group of order 2. It is also isomorphic to the dihedral group of order 4.

The essential symmetry between the three elements of order 2 in the Klein four-group can be seen by its permutation representation on 4 points:

*V*= < (1,2)(3,4), (1,3)(2,4), (1,4)(2,3) >

One can also think of the Klein four-group as the automorphism group of the following graph:
