Zcharacterization of a Family of Simple Groups by Their Character Table

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The paper establishes a method for bounding the 2-rank of a simple group with one conjugacy class of involutions, by means of its character table. For many groups of 2-rank 2=4, this bound is shown to be exact. The main result is that the simple groups G2 (q). (q, 6)= 1, are characterized by their character table.
