Number of finite simple groups of given order is at most 2 - is a classification-free proof possible?
Added a few LaTeX tags. |

out-trees and least upper boundness
I'm still very confused. Yes, lattices contain semicycles, that's just the point - you were asking if every LUB graph is a (kind of) tree, and it isn't. You now changed the question to ask if every connected digraph without semicycles (which further satisfies LUB) must be a (kind of) tree. Well, it is, by definition, right? The underlying undirected graph certainly is a tree (connected and cycle free). This is just an out-tree except that we haven't chosen a specific root. |

Finite simple groups and conjugacy classes with 2p elements
Is it known that this can't occur with the alternating groups? Empirically it looks like the sizes of the conjugacy classes of $A_n$ all have at least 3 prime factors once $n>8$. |

Second eigenvalue of suspension of a graph
Shouldn't you be looking at the Laplacian, rather than the adjacency matrix? For non-regular graphs I'm not sure if the second largest eigenvalue is the thing that controls mixing. Also, the operation you're interested in seems more like taking the cone over $G$, rather than a suspension. |
