Saxl graphs of primitive affine groups with sporadic point stabilisers

Let G be a permutation group on a set Ω. A base for G is a subset of Ω whose pointwise stabiliser is trivial, and the base size of G is the minimal cardinality of a base. If G has base size 2, then

Strongly base-two groups

. Let G be a finite group, let H be a core-free subgroup and let b ( G, H ) denote the base size for the action of G on G/H . Let α ( G ) be the number of conjugacy classes of core-free subgroups H of

On the Saxl graphs of primitive groups with soluble stabilisers

Let G be a transitive permutation group on a finite set Ω and recall that a base for G is a subset of Ω with trivial pointwise stabiliser. The base size of G , denoted b ( G ), is the minimal size of

Non-solvable groups whose character degree graph has a cut-vertex. II

. Let G be a finite group, and let cd( G ) denote the set of degrees of the irreducible complex characters of G . Define then the character degree graph ∆( G ) as the (simple undirected) graph whose

On the Saxl graph of a permutation group

Abstract Let G be a permutation group on a set Ω. A subset of Ω is a base for G if its pointwise stabiliser in G is trivial. In this paper we introduce and study an associated graph Σ(G), which we

On the Classification of Extremely Primitive Affine Groups

Let G be a finite non-regular primitive permutation group on a set Ω with point stabiliser Gα. Then G is said to be extremely primitive if Gα acts primitively on each of its orbits in Ω \ {α}, which

Base sizes for finite groups of Lie type in cross-characteristic

Let $G \leq \mathrm{GL}(V)$ be a group with a unique subnormal quasisimple subgroup $E(G)$ that acts absolutely irreducibly on $V$. A base for $G$ acting on $V$ is a set of vectors with trivial
