The maximal subgroups of the low-dimensional finite classical groups

John Bray, Derek Holt, Colva Mary Roney-Dougal

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This is a research monograph which classifies the maximal subgroups of the finite classical groups in dimension up to twelve. It primarily consists of a 300-page proof of this classification, and then tables describing the content of the classification occupy a further 70 pages. We also describe the maximal subgroups of those exceptional groups which have a representation in dimension at most 12. The proof is computer-assisted, and the book has an accompanying website with downloadable computer files.
