A set S in a group G is said to be independent if no element of S can be written as a word in the other elements of S. A set S in a group G is said to be a minimax set if it is an independent generating set of largest size in G. My current research seeks to find good upper bounds for sizes of minimax sets in the groups SL3(q), SO3(q) and SU3(q). I will present some of the background for the research, some of the tools used, and some of the results already obtained.
