Abstract Root Subgroups and Simple Groups of Lie-Type - Monographs in Mathematics 95 (Hardback)Franz Georg Timmesfeld (author)
- We can order this
This book systematically treats the theory of groups generated by a conjugacy class of subgroups, satisfying certain generational properties on pairs of subgroups. For finite groups, this theory has been developed in the 1970s mainly by M. Aschbacher, B. Fischer and the author. It was extended to arbitrary groups in the 1990s by the author. The theory of abstract root subgroups is an important tool to study and classify simple classical and Lie-type groups.

"The book is well written: the style is concise but not hard and most of the book is not too difficult to read for a graduate student. Some parts of it are certainly suited for a class."
