will speak on

Coprime subdegrees for primitive permutation groups and completely reducible linear groups

at 11am on Wednesday 7th of March in MLR2



Abstract. This work was inspired by a question of Gabriel Navarro about orbit lengths of groups acting on finite vector spaces, and is joint work with Pablo Spiga, Silvio Dolfi and Bob Guralnick. If a finite group H acts irreducibly on a finite vector space V, then we proved that for every pair of non-zero vectors, their orbit lengths a, b have a non-trivial common factor.

This could be interpreted in the context of permutation groups. The group VH is an affine primitive group on V and a, b are orbit lengths of the point stabiliser H, that is, a and b are subdegrees of VH. This raises a question about subdegrees for more general primitive permutation groups. Coprime subdegrees can arise, but (we show) only for three of the eight types of primitive groups. Moreover it is never possible to have as many as three pairwise coprime subdegrees. All proofs depend on the finite simple group classification.

16:30 - SEMINAR - Honours Seminar : On the quantum ergodicity of the geodesic flow More Information
This dissertation presents and expands on a seminal result of A.I. Schnirelman in the theory of quantum ergodicity. The theorem is concerned with the probability densities defined by eigenfunctions of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on a compact Riemannian manifold. An example of semiclassical correspondence, it asserts, for an ergodic geodesic flow, the existence of a sequence of these functions for which the densities are asymptotically uniform in the limit of high eigenvalues. The theories of pseudodifferential operators, distributions, symplectic geometry and ergodic systems are developed in the earlier chapters, as these are relied on heavily in the theorem's proof.

will speak on

Pentagonal geometries

at 11am on Wednesday 14th of March in MLR2

Abstract: Jacques Tits introduced generalised polygons in order to geometrically describe groups of Lie type, and as their name suggests, they are generalisations of ordinary regular polygons. In this talk, we look at the concept of a "pentagonal geometry" as a generalisation of the pentagon and the Desargues configuration, in the same vein that the generalised polygons share the fundamental properties of ordinary polygons. (This is joint work with Simeon Ball, Alice Devillers and Klara Stokes).

11:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar: s-geodesic transitive graphs More Information
Groups and Combinatorics Seminar

Wei Jin (UWA)

will speak on

s-geodesic transitive graphs

at 11am on Wednesday 4th of April in MLR2.

Abstract: In a finite graph Gamma, a geodesic from a vertex u to a vertex v is one of the shortest paths from u to v, and this geodesic is called an i-geodesic if the distance between u and v is i. The graph Gamma is said to be s-geodesic transitive if the graph automorphism group is transitive on the set of s-geodesics. In this talk, I will compare the s-geodesic transitivity with other two well-known transitive properties, namely s-arc transitivity and s-distance transitivity, and determine the local structure of 2-geodesic transitive graphs, and also give some results about the family of locally disconnected 2-geodesic transitive but not 2-arc transitive graphs.

All welcome
