This quantity involves contributions by way of researchers who have been invited to the Harlaxton convention on Computational staff concept and Cohomology, held in August of 2008, and to the AMS particular consultation on Computational staff idea, held in October 2008. This quantity showcases examples of the way Computational team thought should be utilized to quite a lot of theoretical points of crew idea. one of the difficulties studied during this booklet are category of $p$-groups, covers of Lie teams, resolutions of Bieberbach teams, and the research of the reduce vital sequence of loose teams. This quantity additionally comprises expository articles at the probabilistic zeta functionality of a bunch and on enumerating subgroups of symmetric teams. Researchers and graduate scholars operating in all parts of workforce conception will locate many examples of the way Computational team idea is helping at a variety of phases of the study approach, from constructing conjectures during the verification level. those examples will recommend to the mathematician how you can contain Computational staff concept into their very own examine endeavors. desk of Contents: B.

**Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach **

The illustration concept of finite teams has obvious fast progress lately with the improvement of effective algorithms and desktop algebra platforms. this is often the 1st publication to supply an advent to the normal and modular illustration concept of finite teams with detailed emphasis at the computational facets 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 user-friendly finite p-group idea. just like the 1st quantity, 1000's of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. very important themes provided during this monograph contain: (a) category 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 pÂ² are abelian, (h) class of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index pÂ² are categorized.

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

George Mackey was once a rare mathematician of significant energy and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration thought, harmonic research, ergodic thought, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps this day. This publication relies on lectures offered at an AMS specific consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.
