|Groups and Combinatorics Seminar: The generalised Curtis-Tits system and black box groups
Groups and Combinatorics Seminar
Sukru Yalcinkaya (UWA)
will speak on
The generalised Curtis-Tits system and black box groups
at 12 noon in MLR2 on Tuesday 9th of March.
Abstract: The Curtis-Tits presentation of groups of Lie type is the main
identification theorem used in the classification of the finite simple
groups. I will describe the most general form of the Curtis-Tits
presentation of finite groups of Lie type where the Phan's
presentation for the twisted groups appears as a special case. I will
also talk about a beautiful application of this result to the
recognition of finite black box groups.
If time permits I will briefly talk about how Curtis-Tits and its Phan
variations link two theories: Theory of black box groups and groups of
finite Morley rank.
