Symplectic group over integers and finite fields

For $H=\left( \begin{smallmatrix} 0 & I_n \\ -I_n & 0 \end{smallmatrix} \right)$ and a commutative ring $F$, the symplectic group $Sp(2n,F)$ is the set of all matrices $M\in F^{2n\times 2n}$ ...

Finding generators of matrix subgroups

I am particularly interested in Sp$(2n,\mathbb{Z})$, but I think an answer for a more general set of matrices would help. General question: Given a subgroup of a group of matrices, what tools or ...
Symplectic groups $Sp_{2m}(2)$ as $2$-transitive permutation (i.e. Galois) groups
I am looking for information about the symplectic groups $Sp_{2m}(2)$ as permutation group acting on quadratic forms. Consider the block matrices e=\begin{pmatrix}0&1\\0&0\end{pmatrix}, \...
Greetings to all ! Let me first confess that this question was mentionned to me by Bernard Dacorogna, who doesn't sail on MO. Let $A\in M_{2n}(k)$ be an alternate matrix. Say that $A$ is non-...
