will speak on

Conditions for solubility of finite groups

at 1pm Friday 4th of November in Maths Lecture Room 2

Abstract: In John Thompson's famous N-groups paper, he proved that a finite group is soluble if and only if all of its 2-generated subgroups are soluble. This influenced several recent explorations to understand how much local "soluble information" is actually needed to confirm global solubility, including work by Simon Guest discussed last year. I will report on joint work with Marcel Herzog, Silvio Dolfi and Bob Guralnick. It exploits local information different from other approaches.

All welcome
