Dear All,

Does someone know some source for detail description of maximal subgroups of $PSL(n,q)$ , and their indices.

Thanks in advance.

Take a look at Michael Aschbacher's paper "On the maximal subgroups of the finite classical groups" in Invent. Math. 76 1984, 469-514. If you can't access it through your university, you could find on pages 3-4 of… a statement of Aschbacher's theorem in case of the PGL that might be helpful for you. – Someone Jun 16 '11 at 15:42
If you prefer pdf to postscript, try… instead. – Someone Jun 16 '11 at 15:44
