A new characterization for the simple group PSL ( 2 , p 2 ) by order and some character degrees

Behrooz Khosravi, Behnam Khosravi, Bahman Khosravi, Zahra Momen (2015)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

Let G be a finite group and p a prime number. We prove that if G is a finite group of order | PSL ( 2 , p 2 ) | such that G has an irreducible character of degree p 2 and we know that G has no irreducible character θ such that 2 p θ ( 1 ) , then G is isomorphic to PSL ( 2 , p 2 ) . As a consequence of our result we prove that PSL ( 2 , p 2 ) is uniquely determined by the structure of its complex group algebra.

A problem of Kollár and Larsen on finite linear groups and crepant resolutions

Robert Guralnick, Pham Tiep (2012)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

The notion of age of elements of complex linear groups was introduced by M. Reid and is of importance in algebraic geometry, in particular in the study of crepant resolutions and of quotients of Calabi–Yau varieties. In this paper, we solve a problem raised by J. Kollár and M. Larsen on the structure of finite irreducible linear groups generated by elements of age 1 . More generally, we bound the dimension of finite irreducible linear groups generated by elements of bounded deviation. As a consequence...
