A split Cartan subgroup of $\GL(2,\F_p)$ is a Cartan subgroup that is diagonalizable over $\F_p$. Every split Cartan subgroup is conjugate to the subgroup of diagonal matrices, which is isomorphic to $\F_p^\times\times\F_p^\times$.

The label Cs identifies the split Cartan subgroup of diagonal matrices.

The label Cs.a.b identifies the proper subgroup of Cs generated by \[ \begin{pmatrix}a&0\\0&1/a\end{pmatrix}, \begin{pmatrix}b&0\\0&r/b\end{pmatrix}, \] where $a$ and $b$ are minimally chosen positive integers and $r$ is the least positive integer generating $(\Z/p\Z)^\times\simeq \F_p^\times$, as defined in [MR:3482279].
