Friday 01 
15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, The Wall and Guralnick conjectures: history and legacy

More Information

Abstract:
In 1961 G.E. Wall conjectured that the number of maximal subgroups of a finite group is less than the order of the group. The conjecture holds for all finite solvable groups (proved by Wall himself in his original paper) and holds for almost all finite simple groups, possibly (...)

Friday 15 
15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, ErdösKoRado sets in finite classical polar spaces

More Information

Abstract:
ErdösKoRado sets (EKR sets) are a family of ksets of { 1, ..., n } that pairwise intersect in at least one element and were first studied by Erdös, Ko, and Rado in 1961. There are several generalizations of EKR sets. The speaker's main interest is study of EKR sets in polar (...)

15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Irreducible subgroups of classical algebraic groups

More Information

Abstract:
Let G be a group, let H be a subgroup of G and let V be an irreducible KGmodule over a field K. We say that (G,H,V) is an irreducible triple if V is an irreducible KHmodule. Classifying the irreducible triples of a group is a fundamental problem in representation theory, with (...)

Friday 05 
15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Redeipolynomials in finite geometry

More Information

Abstract:
L. Redei has studied in a detailed way socalled "lacunary" polynomials over finite fields. One of the applications described is to investigate the number of values the difference quotient of a polynomial over a finite field can have. This result has a direct (...)

Tuesday 09 
13:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, The ErdosStone Theorem for finite geometries

More Information

Abstract:
For any class of graphs, the growth function h(n) of the class is defined to be the maximum number of edges in a graph in the class on n vertices. The ErdosStone Theorem remarkably states that, for any class of graphs that is closed under taking subgraphs, the asymptotic (...)

Friday 12 
15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, On the number of matroids

More Information

Abstract:
Matroids are combinatorial structures that generalize graphs as well as configurations of points in projective space. They consist of a finite ground set E and a set of subsets of E called B, such that B satisfies certain axioms. We consider the problem of bounding the number (...)

Friday 19 
15:00  SEMINAR  Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Arctransitive graphs with large automorphism groups

More Information

Abstract:
An arc in a graph is an unordered pair of adjacent vertices. A graph is called arctransitive if its automorphism group acts transitively on its set of arcs. We consider the problem of bounding the size of the automorphism group of an arctransitive graph in terms of its order (...)
