Abstract. Let G be a finite primitive permutation group with a non-trivial, non-regular normal subgroup N, and let G be an orbit of a point stabilizer Na. Then each composition factor S of Na occurs as a section of the permutation group induced by Na on G. The case N ¼ G is a theorem of Wielandt. The general result and some of its corollaries are useful for studying . groups called bases. In this thesis report I will focus on studying the bounds of the base size of primitive solvable permutation groups. Let Gbe a transitive permutation group which is acting on a set, it is called primitive if its action can only have the trivial G-invariant partitions of,(formal de nition given later on). uential book Finite Permutation Groups ‘It is to one of Schur’s seminars that I owe the stimulus to work with permutation groups, my rst research area. At that time the theory had nearly died out so completely superseded by the more gener-ally applicable theory of abstract groups that by even important. A B-group is a group such that if is a permutation group containing as a regular subgroup then is either imprimitive or -transitive.(Regular subgroups are always transitive in this post.) The term ‘B-group’ was introduced by Wielandt, in honour of Burnside, who showed in that if is an odd prime then is a B-group. This is a companion to his important theorem that a transitive.

This paper is about the structure of infinite primitive permutation groups and totally disconnected locally compact groups (“tdlc groups”). The permutation groups we investigate are subdegree-finite, that is, all orbits of point stabilisers are finite. Automorphism groups of connected, locally finite graphs are examples of subdegree-finite permutation groups.

REGULAR SUBGROUPS OF PRIMITIVE PERMUTATION GROUPS 3 Remarks (1) All entries in the tables give examples of regular subgroups, and this is verified for each entry as it arises in the proof.

The fourth column of each table gives the number of possibilities for Bup to conjugacy (except for Tablewhere this information is rather clear). Regular subgroups of finite primitive permutation groups were classified by Liebeck, Praeger and Saxl [LPS10] and by Baumeister [Bau07].

The authors address the classical problem of determining finite primitive permutation groups \(G\) with a regular subgroup \(B\). The main theorem solves the problem completely under the assumption that \(G\) is almost simple.

The sharply simply transitive groups are the regular groups. They have no special structure as every abstract group are faithfully represented as a regular permutation group. A primitive group that contains a transposition is a symmetric group.

A primitive group that contains a three-cycle is either alternating or symmetric. This paper starts the classification of the primitive permutation groups (G, Ω) such that G contains a regular subgroup determine all the triples (G, Ω, X) with soc (G) an alternating, or a sporadic or an exceptional group of Lie type.

Further, we construct all the examples (G, Ω, X) with G a classical group which are known to us. Our particular interest is in the 8-dimensional Cited by: 9.

Permutation groups are one of the oldest topics in algebra. Their study has recently been revolutionized by new developments, particularly the Classification of Finite Simple Groups, but also relations with logic and combinatorics, and importantly, computer algebra systems have been introduced that can deal with large permutation groups.

Our main result,Theorem 1,shows that such primitive groups are,per-haps surprisingly,rather rare,and that the occurrence of such transitive subgroups is intimately connected with factorisations of almost simple groups.

Algebra,– Book summary views reflect the number of visits to the book and chapter landing by: In mathematics, a permutation group is a group G whose elements are permutations of a given set M and whose group operation is the composition of permutations in G (which are thought of as bijective functions from the set M to itself).

The group of all permutations of a set M is the symmetric group of M, often written as Sym(M). The term permutation group thus means a. Peter Cameron in his book [4, p. ], calls a primitive permutation group Gbasic if it is not contained in a wreath product acting by product action.

He then states a version of the O’Nan-Scott Theorem in terms of basic groups and a wreath product construction. Non-basic primitive permutation groups can be described as subgroups of wreath.

Any good book on undergraduate group theory will be a good place to look at actions and many will include discussion of transitive, primitive and imprimitive actions. More specialised, but harder, books are the following.

Let S be the symmetric group on the infinite set er the product action of S 2 on X 2, and let a n be the number of orbits on subsets of size problem is to find a formula for, or an efficient means of calculating, a n.

The number a n has various other interpretations. It is the number of zero. The book begins with the basic ideas, standard constructions and important examples in the theory of permutation then develops the combinatorial and group theoretic structure of primitive groups leading to the proof of the pivotal O'Nan-Scott Theorem which links finite primitive groups with finite simple groups.

$\begingroup$ in the theory of permutation groups, the usual Galois correspondence is between subgroups and subrings of the centraliser ring of the permutation representation, due to Schur (?).

Wielandt's book has details, IIRC. $\endgroup$ – Dima Pasechnik Jan 7 '15 at Cheryl E. Praeger is the author of Permutation Groups and Cartesian Decompositions ( avg rating, 0 ratings, 0 reviews), Low Rank Representations and G.

-transitive permutation group { a non-regular transitive group in which all the nontrivial orbits of a point-stabilizer have equal size { was introduced by Wielandt in his book [16, x10].

Examples are 2-transitive groups and Frobenius groups: for the former, aFile Size: KB. I was wondering if there is a systematic way to construct the regular Abelian groups of order $2^m$ and type $(2,2,\ldots,2)$.

Since the permutation group needs to be regular, it should act transitively on a set of size $2^m$. Then the group of order n is isomorphic to a regular subgroup of S n." (page 19 in the Dover edition) I've written a paper on permutation groups and it still took me a while to figure out what that's supposed to mean.

$\endgroup$ – Ben Webster Regular elementary abelian subgroups of primitive permutation groups. The proof given in the book is by induction on k. The base case of k=2 is clear: 2-transitive groups are primitive, and primitive groups' normal subgroups are transitive.

Now we assume the result holds for k-1 and endeavour to prove it for k. Choose some $\alpha \in \Omega$ (where $\Omega$ is the set G acts on). AbstractThe 2-closure G(2) of a permutation group G on a finite set Ω is the largest subgroup of Sym(Ω) which has the same orbits as G in the induced action on Ω × Ω.
