will speak on

Generation and random generation: from simple groups to maximal subgroups

at 1pm on Friday 16th of September in MLR2

Abstract: Problems concerning the generation of finite simple groups have been studied since the early days of group theory in the 19th century. In this talk I will survey some of the main results and open problems in this area, and I will present some new results on the generation of maximal subgroups of simple groups. Applications and related open problems will also be discussed. This is joint work with Martin Liebeck and Aner Shalev.
