Time: 16:10 - 17:10

Venue: Middle Meeting Room

Title: Permutation groups and transformation semigroups (I)


The aim of these lectures is to show how recent advances in permutation group theory has been used in studying questions about finite transformation semigroups. The first lecture will be an introduction to the two topics in the title, with particular reference to the way in which the classification of the finite simple groups has affected the theory of permutation groups.
