MATH Seminar: “Finite groups of rank two which do not involve Qd(p)” Ergün Yalçın, SA – 141, 1:40PM February 17 (EN)

Dear Colleagues and Students,

You are cordially invited to the Topology Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Ergün Yalçın (Bilkent)

“Finite groups of rank two which do not involve Qd(p)”

Abstract: Let p>3 be a prime. We prove that if G is a finite group with p-rank equal to 2, then G involves Qd(p) if and only if G p’-involves Qd(p). This allows us to use a version of Glauberman’s ZJ-theorem to give a more direct construction of finite group actions on mod-p homotopy spheres.

We give two examples to illustrate that the above conclusion does not hold for p=2, 3.
This is joint work with Yasir Kızmaz. The work was supported by Tübitak 1001 project (grant no: 116F194).
