will speak on

Point-primitive generalised polygons

at 3pm Friday 29 August in Weatherburn Lecture Theatre.

Abstract:

This talk will be about some on-going joint work with John Bamberg, Stephen Glasby, Cheryl Praeger and Csaba Schneider on classifying point-primitive generalised hexagons and octagons. I will go through our proof that if a (thick) generalised hexagon or octagon admits an automorphism group G that acts primitively on points, then G must be an almost simple group. If there is time, I will say a bit about how we can go further.
