Abstract Given a finite group G and a faithful irreducible FG-module V where F has prime order, does G have a regular orbit on V? This problem is equivalent to determining which primitive permutation groups of affine type have a base of size 2. Let G be a covering group of an almost simple group whose socle T is sporadic, and let V be a faithful irreducible FG-module where F has prime order dividing | G | . We classify the pairs ( G , V ) for which G has no regular orbit on V, and determine the… Expand
