Ring $R_{ 72 }$

Nakayama's quasi-Frobenius ring that isn't Frobenius


Let $F_2$ be the field of two elements, and consider the subring of matrices of the form $\begin{bmatrix}a&b&p&0&0&0\\c&d&q&0&0&0\\0&0&r&0&0&0\\0&0&0&r&s&t\\0&0&0&0&a&b\\0&0&0&0&c&d\end{bmatrix}$ with entries in $F_2$.

Notes: Jacobson radical is the subset with $a=b=c=d=r=0$.
