SUMMARY:Pure Mathematics Seminar: Tim Burness
DESCRIPTION:Generation and random generation of simple groups and their subgroups\n\nIt is well known that every finite simple group can be generated by two elements, and many related problems have been studied in recent years. I will provide a brief survey of some of the main results in this area, and I will report on recent joint work with Martin Liebeck (Imperial) and Aner Shalev (Jerusalem) on the generation of maximal subgroups of simple groups. Applications and open problems will also be discussed.
