We compute explicit polynomials having the sporadic Higman-Sims group HS and its automorphism group Aut(HS) as Galois groups over the rational function field Q(t).

Belyi map for the sporadic group J1
We compute the genus 0 Belyi map for the sporadic Janko group J1 of degree 266 and describe the applied method. This yields explicit polynomials having J1 as a Galois group over K(t), [K:Q] = 7.
Explicit Belyi maps over Q having almost simple primitive monodromy groups
We present all Belyi maps P^1(C) -> P^1(C) having almost simple primitive monodromy groups (not isomorphic to A_n or S_n) containing rigid and rational generating triples of degree between 50 andExpand
An approach for computing families of multi-branch-point covers and applications for symplectic Galois groups
TLDR
This work combines existing deformation and interpolation techniques with recently developed strong tools for the computation of 3-point covers to compute several families of polynomials with symplectic Galois groups, obtaining the first totally real polynOMials with Galois group PSp 6 ( 2 ) .
