Title: The 2-transitive permutation representation of the small Ree groups

Time and place: 4pm Friday 03 May 2019, Weatherburn LT

Abstract: Given a group G, the question of which subsets S of G generate G is of natural interest. One approach to this question is determining the Möbius function of G, introduced by Hall in 1936. In order to determine the Möbius function, it is necessary to have a good understanding of the subgroup structure of G, which is of course of interest in its own right. In this talk we discuss how the Möbius function is determined in practice, using the specific case of the small Ree groups.
