If you have a question about this talk, please contact Simon Goodwin. Constructing the automorphism group of a finite group remains challenging. The critical hard case is that of a finite p-group P where much effort has been invested over the past 20 years in developing recursive algorithms which work down a central series for P. If we can locate characteristic structure in P, then we can often readily solve the problem. The real challenge remains class 2 p-groups of exponent p. In this lecture we will outline algorithmic approaches and report on recent joint work which offer new hope of progress on this intractable problem.
