Motivated by the maximal subgroup problem of the finite classical groups the authors begin the classification of imprimitive irreducible modules of finite quasisimple groups over algebraically closed fields K. A module of a group G over K is imprimitive, if it is induced from a module of a proper subgroup of G. The authors obtain their strongest results when char(K)=0, although much of their analysis carries over into positive characteristic. If G is a finite quasisimple group of Lie type, they prove that an imprimitive irreducible KG-module is Harish-Chandra induced. This being true for \rm char(K) different from the defining characteristic of G, the authors specialize to the case char(K)=0 and apply Harish-Chandra philosophy to classify irreducible Harish-Chandra induced modules in terms of Harish-Chandra series, as well as in terms of Lusztig series. The authors determine the asymptotic proportion of the irreducible imprimitive KG-modules, when G runs through a series groups of fixed (twisted) Lie type. One of the surprising outcomes of their investigations is the fact that these proportions tend to 1, if the Lie rank of the groups tends to infinity. For exceptional groups G of Lie type of small rank, and for sporadic groups G, the authors determine all irreducible imprimitive KG-modules for arbitrary characteristic of K.
The author extends results of McLaughlin and Kantor on overgroups of long root subgroups and long root elements in finite classical groups. In particular he determines the maximal subgroups of this form. He also determines the maximal overgroups of short root subgroups in finite classical groups and the maximal overgroups in finite orthogonal groups of c-root subgroups.
Around 1980, G. Mason announced the classification of a certain subclass of an important class of finite simple groups known as ``quasithin groups''. The classification of the finite simple groups depends upon a proof that there are no unexpected groups in this subclass. Unfortunately Mason neither completed nor published his work. In the Main Theorem of this two-part book (Volumes 111 and 112 of the AMS Mathematical Surveys and Monographs series) the authors provide a proof of a stronger theorem classifying a larger class of groups, which is independent of Mason's arguments. In particular, this allows the authors to close this last remaining gap in the proof of the classification of all finite simple groups. An important corollary of the Main Theorem provides a bridge to the program of Gorenstein, Lyons, and Solomon (AMS Mathematical Surveys and Monographs, Volume 40) which seeks to give a new, simplified proof of the classification of the finite simple groups. Part II of the work (this volume) contains the proof of the Main Theorem, and the proof of the corollary classifying quasithin groups of even type. Part I (Volume 111) contains results which are used in the proof of the Main Theorem. Some of the results are known and fairly general, but their proofs are scattered throughout the literature; others are more specialized and are proved here for the first time.
Publishes research articles that focus on groups or group actions as well as articles in other areas of mathematics in which groups or group actions are used as a main tool. Covers all topics of modern group theory with preference given to geometric, asymptotic and combinatorial group theory, dynamics of group actions, probabilistic and analytical methods, interaction with ergodic theory and operator algebras, and other related fields.
