Hebrew University Amitsur Algebra Seminar Time: Thursday, Nov. 10 at 12:00-13:15 Place: room 209, Mathematics building Speaker: George Glauberman Title: Characteristic Subgroups of Finite p-groups Abstract: Suppose S is a Sylow subgroup of a finite group G. What does the normalizer in G of a characteristic subgroup of S tell us about G? I plan to discuss some examples, including a new case by Ronald Solomon and myself obtained by using a construction of Avinoam Mann.
