Is there a classification of the finite subgroups of $PGSp_4(\mathbb{C})$?

  • 1
    $\begingroup$ I search a classification. Example : the finite subgroups of $PGL_2(\mathbb{C})$ are the dihedral groups D_2n and A_5 S_4 and S_5 ..... And I want an answer like this or a reference. I didn't speak about compact but finite groups. $\endgroup$ – Adel BETINA Jun 3 '16 at 11:59

    $\begingroup$ I understand that you asked about finite subgroups. Anyway my comment was about maximal compact subgroups which is the first step towards understanding finite subgroups. $\endgroup$ – YCor Jun 3 '16 at 12:18

    $\begingroup$ As someone who isn't a group theorist, I am a bit puzzled by the downvote and the votes to close... $\endgroup$ – Yemon Choi Jun 3 '16 at 13:01

    $\begingroup$ @YemonChoi The question itself is reasonable. But a little more context would have been good! For example the poster could have included their comment above in the original question. $\endgroup$ – Derek Holt Jun 3 '16 at 14:18

    $\begingroup$ Maybe the discussion and references of a related question mathoverflow.net/questions/37136/… helps further. $\endgroup$ – Peter Mueller Jun 4 '16 at 20:41
