Diagram Groups (Memoirs of the American Mathematical by Victor Guba

By Victor Guba

Diagram teams are teams including round diagrams (pictures) over monoid shows. they are often additionally outlined as primary teams of the Squier complexes linked to monoid shows. The authors exhibit that the category of diagram teams comprises a few recognized teams, akin to the R. Thompson crew $F$. This category is closed below unfastened items, finite direct items, and a few different group-theoretical operations. The authors increase combinatorics on diagrams just like the combinatorics on phrases. This is helping find a few constitution and algorithmic houses of diagram teams. a few of these houses are new even for R. Thompson's crew $F$. In specific, the authors describe the centralizers of components in $F$, turn out that it has solvable conjugacy challenge, and extra.

Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration idea of finite teams has obvious quick development in recent times with the improvement of effective algorithms and laptop algebra platforms. this can be the 1st booklet to supply an advent to the normal and modular illustration conception of finite teams with distinct 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 common finite p-group conception. just like the 1st quantity, 1000's of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of instances, simplified. very important issues offered during this monograph contain: (a) type of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are basic, (b) type 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) class of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) class 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 was once a unprecedented mathematician of significant strength and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration conception, harmonic research, ergodic concept, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that maintains at the present time. This booklet is predicated on lectures awarded at an AMS precise consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.

6 Orbits of permutation groups on the power set In this last section we are concerned with permutation groups on a finite set Ω and their action on P(Ω), the power set of Ω. Note that if for A, B ∈ P(Ω) we define A + B := (A ∪ B) − (A ∩ B) = (A − B) ∪ (B − A), 324 KELLER then P(Ω) with this addition becomes a GF (2)–module, and thus the action of G on P(Ω) fits within the framework of this article of studying linear group actions, and as we will see, it has raised some interest and found important applications in the past, some of which are related to the previously discussed topics.
