Axial
Algebras and 3-Transposition groups
Joint lectures by Hans Cuypers and Jonathan I. Hall Special guest lectures on Axial Algebras by Sergey Shpectorov Monday,
August 19th Introduction to 3-transpositions
The basic theory of 3-transpositions, their diagram,
commuting graph,
\theta- and \tau-relations and their connections
with normal subgroups will be discussed. Various examples of
3-transposition groups as well as an overview of the classfication of
all 3-transposition groups will be given.
Tuesday, August 20th:The general theory of 3-transposition groupsWednesday, August 21st Groups of symplectic type
A characterization of the symplectic and orthogonal
groups over the field with 2 elements as groups generated
by 3-transpositions is presented. Some applications in graph theory
and geometry are discussed.
Thursday, August 22ndtGroups of orthogonal type. Friday, August 23rd Groups of unitary
typeMonday, August 26thSporadic
3-transposition groups
We discuss the existence and uniqueness of the three
sporadic Fischer
groups and their relations with some other sporadic
simple groups.
Tuesday, August 27th Generalizations in
Groups Theory and Geometry
Generalizations, both in Group Theory and Geometry,
of the concepts,theory
and methods used in the study of 3-transposition
groups are discussed.
Wednesday, August 28th3-transpositions and
algebras
We study the relation between 3-transposition groups
and various types of
algebras. Today, our focus will be on the relation
between 3-transpositions
and Lie algebras.
Thursday, August 29th:Axial
algebras and 3-transpositions
Axial algebras and their relation with
3-transposition groups will be discussed.
Friday, August 30th More on axial
algebras
We continue the study of axial algebras and their
relation with 3-transposition
groups.
