Computational Algebra Seminar: Leemans -- On computing subgroup lattices of sporadic groups with Magma

Computation of subgroup structures of groups leads to understanding them        
better and to being able to answer questions about them and the                 
geometric objects they act on.                                                  
In this talk, we will focus on the computation of the whole subgroup            
structure of finite (simple) groups. We will briefly recall what is the         
subgroup lattice of a group and explain how Magma does to compute it. We        
will then give some last minute results on the sporadic simple groups           
and some applications of these results.
