Perfect groups

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 1989 - Mathematics - 364 pages
Here is a unique guide devoted exclusively to a new and innovative area of mathematical study. The volume, prepared by internationally known experts in computational group theory, provides a systematic source of examples of finite perfect groups. Approaching the subject from both a theoretical and practical standpoint, this book includes discussion of the classification of finite perfect groups of small order and the use of infinite perfect groups to construct infinite sequences of finite perfect groups. These discussions will also provide informative material on subgraphs and asymptotic behavior. The second part of this valuable reference, which can be utilized independently or as part of a unified whole, gives the reader two sets of tables which provide fast access to most perfect groups of order up to one million, as well as low-dimensional perfect (crystallographic) space groups.
