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

Speaker: Dimitri Leemans (Université Libre de Bruxelles)
Title: On computing subgroup lattices of sporadic groups with Magma
Time & Place: Thursday 8 November, 3:05-4pm, Eastern Ave Rm 403.

Abstract:
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.
