Basic coset geometries

- 2010

In earlier work we gave a characterisation of pregeometries which are ‘basic’ (that is, admit no ‘non-degenerate’ quotients) relative to two different kinds of quotient operation, namely taking…

Quotients of incidence geometries

- Mathematics, Computer ScienceDes. Codes Cryptogr.
- 2012

A theory for quotients of geometries is developed and sufficient conditions for the quotient of a geometry to be a geometry are obtained, which shows that the class of coset pregeometries, which contains all flag-transitive geometry, is closed under an appropriate quotienting operation.

Locally s-arc transitive graphs with two different quasiprimitive actions☆

Abstract Previous work of the authors has shown that an important class of locally ( G , 2 ) -arc transitive graphs are those for which G acts faithfully and quasiprimitively on each of its two…

Locally 2-Arc Transitive Graphs, Homogeneous Factorizations, and Partial Linear Spaces

- Mathematics

We establish natural bijections between three different classes of combinatorial objects; namely certain families of locally 2-arc transitive graphs, partial linear spaces, and homogeneous…

Diagrams for Geometries and Groups

- Computer Science, MathematicsJ. Comb. Theory, Ser. A
- 1979

The main motivation for this work and its most interesting aspect is based on the observation that more than half of the known sporadic groups are related to a diagram appearing as an extension of a spherical diagram by one or more strokes of the same type.

Analysing Finite Locally s-arc Transitive Graphs

- Mathematics
- 2003

We present a new approach to analysing finite graphs which admit a vertex intransitive group of automorphisms G and are either locally (G, s)-arc transitive for s > 2 or G-locally primitive. Such…

Characterizing finite locally s-arc transitive graphs with a star normal quotient

- 2006

Abstract Let Γ be a finite locally (G, s)-arc transitive graph with s ≥ 2 such that G is intransitive on vertices. Then Γ is bipartite and the two parts of the bipartition are G-orbits. In previous…

An O'Nan‐Scott Theorem for Finite Quasiprimitive Permutation Groups and an Application to 2‐Arc Transitive Graphs

- Mathematics
- 1993

A permutation group is said to be quasiprimitive if each of its nontrivial normal subgroups is transitive. A structure theorem for finite quasiprimitive permutation groups is proved, along the lines…
