Computational Algebra Seminar: Leedham-Green -- An overview of matrix group recognition

Speaker: Charles Leedham-Green (Queen Mary, University of London)
Title: An overview of matrix group recognition
Time & Place: 3:05-4pm, Thursday 26 April, Carslaw 535

Whereas permutation groups can be analysed by computer through their subgroup
structure, in the case of matrix groups defined over finite fields we have
to use the normal subgroup structure. This makes the basic machinery for
computing with matrix groups far more subtle than the corresponding machinery
for permutation groups, with particular emphasis on simple groups.
I shall give an outline of the approach used, aimed at the non-specialist.
