Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration thought of finite teams has visible fast development in recent times with the improvement of effective algorithms and machine algebra structures. this is often the 1st ebook to supply an creation to the standard and modular illustration idea of finite teams with distinctive emphasis at the computational features of the topic.

Groups of Prime Power Order Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This can be the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to undemanding finite p-group idea. just like the 1st quantity, hundreds and hundreds of significant effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. very important subject matters awarded during this monograph contain: (a) type of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are general, (b) class of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) type of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) type of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p² are abelian, (h) category of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p² are labeled.

Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, and Mathematical Physics: A Tribute to George W. Mackey

George Mackey used to be a unprecedented mathematician of serious strength and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration concept, harmonic research, ergodic thought, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps this present day. This publication relies on lectures offered at an AMS unique consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

X s ) the element x'k = wxk has order p^. Show that then (x±,... , x s , x^ + 1 ,... ] 10. Let M = Gpn if pis odd, M = (G 2")2 if p = 2. Suppose that M is not powerful. Show that d(M) > pn. B is elementary abelian of rank > p n , and (H) [A, xpU] jt 5 . 12 and consider the exponent of Ur(Fp). ] 11. The wreath product Cp I X, for a finite group X, is the semidirect product of the group algebra FP[X] by X, with X acting by right multiplication. Now let H be a finite p-group containing an elementary abelian normal subgroup A and an element x such that [>l,xp ] ^ 1.

X^ G G such that for each N <\o G, (x±N,... 3), and part (i) shows that { # 1 , . . ,Xd} generates H topologically. 6 Proposition If G is a finitely generated profinite group and m is a positive integer then G has only finitely many open subgroups of index m, and every open subgroup contains an open topologically characteristic subgroup. ) Proof Suppose G is topologically generated by a d-element subset. Then there are at most (m\)d continuous homomorphisms of G into the symmetric group 5 m (where Sm has the discrete topology).

(6) Show that JKe-i is a subgroup of G, of order equal to \G : P e (G)|. (c) Show by an example that Ee-\ need not be powerful, (d) Show that if all characteristic subgroups of G are powerful then Ek is a subgroup of G for each k. 6. ) = $($*(£)). Let 5 = su Pi > o d($*(G)) and put W = $ A ( s )+ e (G), where e = 0 if p is odd, e = 1 if p = 2. Show that W is powerful and that \G:W\< p s ( A ( 5 )+ e ).
