The sporadic Mathieu group M12 can be viewed as an error-correcting code, where the codewords are the group's elements written as permutations in list form, and with the usual Hamming distance. We investigate the properties of this group as a code, in particular determining completely the probabilities of successful and ambiguous decoding of words with more than 3 errors (which is the number that can be guaranteed to be corrected).
