Generation of classical groups by good elements

at 1pm on Tuesday 16th of November in MLR2

Abstract: Let G be a classical group and V be the underlying vector space of dimension 2n over a field of size q. Let hi(n,q) be the product of all primitive prime divisors of q^n-1. We consider the elements of order hi(n,q) which act irreducibly on a unique n-dimensional subspace and fix pointwise an n-dimensional subspace of V. We call these elements good elements. I will discuss the probabilistic generation of G by two random conjugate good elements. This is a joint work with Cheryl Praeger and Akos Seress.
