If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Craven. Let G, there exists y ∈ G such that x and _{i}y generate G for every i=1,...,k. If G does not have spread at least 1 then G is said to have spread 0. Using elementary methods we can prove that if G has a non-trivial normal subgroup N such that G/N is non-cyclic then G must have spread 0. It has been conjectured by Guralnick and Kantor that the converse is true. They can prove that the converse holds in many cases. We will discuss some recent joint work with Tim Burness involving the remaining cases.This talk is part of the Algebra Seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
