### Describing the action of $^2E_6(q)$

One of the constructions of the group $^2E_6(q)$ was presented by Tits in his paper "Les «formes réelles» des groupes de type $E_6$". It is being constructed by looking at the action of $^2E_6(q)$ on ...

### What are the rank 3 boolean intervals [H,G], with G simple group?

The rank $n$ boolean lattice $B_{n}$ is the subset lattice of $\{1,2, \dots , n\}$. The lattice $B_{3}$ is the following: Question: What are the rank $3$ boolean intervals of the form $[H,G]$, ...

### a modular character problem [closed]

Let $B\in$Bl$(G|D)$ and suppose that $\sigma\in$Aut$(G)$ fixes every $\chi\in$Irr$(B)$. If $d\in D$, show that $d$ and $d^\sigma$ are $G$-conjugate. It is a problem from Navarro's book "characters and ...

### When is the restriction map $res:H^2(G,U(1))\to H^2(Z_p\times Z_p,U(1))$ not the zero map?

Consider $G$ to be a finite group with non-trivial Schur Multipler $H^2(G,U(1))$, where $G$ acts trivially on the circle group $U(1)$. By Example of a Schur-nontrivial group with no abelian subgroup ...

### Group of Lie type as expanders: explicit estimates

In a paper Finite simple groups as expanders by M. Kassabov, A. Lubotzky and N. Nikolov there is a theorem, stating that there exists $\varepsilon>0$ and $k\in\mathbb{N}$, such that for every non-...

### p-groups with special property on its centralizers

Thanks for any help or comment. Suppose $G$ is a finite non-abelian p-group. Suppose $G$ has a proper non-abelian subgroup $M$ such that for every non-central element $x\in M$, $C_G(x)\subseteq M$. ...

### representation of a group and its center

(I asked the following question at StackExchange but received no answer.) Let $G$ be a finite group and let $Z(G)$ be its center. Let $C=\mathrm{Rep}(G)$ be the category of finite dimensional ...

### Primary invariants of a finite group

For a finite group $G$ and complex representation V of degree $n$, I would like to know the precise definition of Primary invariants. Does any set of n algebraically independent homogeneous invariants ...

### Quotient of Coxeter complex in terms of double cosets?

In Victor Reiner's Quotients of Coxeter Complexes and $P$-Partitions, we have the below definition for the quotient complex of a Coxeter complex by a finite subgroup of the Coxeter group. I think ...

### Rank of a locally free $\mathbb Z[G]$-module

This is a basic question. Let $G$ be a finite group, $M$ a finitely generated $\mathbb Z[G]$-module so that the $\mathbb Z_p[G]$-module $M_p$ is free for all prime numbers $p$, i.e. is locally free. ...

### Radical and Centric not Essential P-group

I'm looking that in the Fusion System categories, the p-subgroups that are essential, are centric (by definition) and radical (by implication of the definition), but I want to know if there is an ...

### Character Values for Alternating Groups of degree $\geq 7$

Is it true that in each row and column of the character table of alternating groups with degree $\geq 7$ there are at most two complex values? Any reference will be highly appreciated.
