A characterization of the linear groups L 2 ( p )

Alireza Khalili Asboei, Ali Iranmanesh (2014)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

Let G be a finite group and π e ( G ) be the set of element orders of G . Let k π e ( G ) and m k be the number of elements of order k in G . Set nse ( G ) : = { m k : k π e ( G ) } . In fact nse ( G ) is the set of sizes of elements with the same order in G . In this paper, by nse ( G ) and order, we give a new characterization of finite projective special linear groups L 2 ( p ) over a field with p elements, where p is prime. We prove the following theorem: If G is a group such that | G | = | L 2 ( p ) | and nse ( G ) consists of 1 , p 2 - 1 , p ( p + ϵ ) / 2 and some numbers divisible by 2 p , where p is a prime greater than...

A characterization property of the simple group PSL 4 ( 5 ) by the set of its element orders

Mohammad Reza Darafsheh, Yaghoub Farjami, Abdollah Sadrudini (2007)

Archivum Mathematicum

Let ω ( G ) denote the set of element orders of a finite group G . If H is a finite non-abelian simple group and ω ( H ) = ω ( G ) implies G contains a unique non-abelian composition factor isomorphic to H , then G is called quasirecognizable by the set of its element orders. In this paper we will prove that the group P S L 4 ( 5 ) is quasirecognizable.

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...

A transvection decomposition in GL(n,2)

Clorinda De Vivo, Claudia Metelli (2002)

Colloquium Mathematicae

An algorithm is given to decompose an automorphism of a finite vector space over ℤ₂ into a product of transvections. The procedure uses partitions of the indexing set of a redundant base. With respect to tents, i.e. finite ℤ₂-representations generated by a redundant base, this is a decomposition into base changes.

Automorphic realization of residual Galois representations

Robert Guralnick, Michael Harris, Nicholas M. Katz (2010)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We show that it is possible in rather general situations to obtain a finite-dimensional modular representation ρ of the Galois group of a number field F as a constituent of one of the modular Galois representations attached to automorphic representations of a general linear group over F , provided one works “potentially.” The proof is based on a close study of the monodromy of the Dwork family of Calabi–Yau hypersurfaces; this in turn makes use of properties of rigid local systems and the classification...
