An update on Hurwitz groups

An update on Hurwitz groups Abstract A Hurwitz group is any non-trivial finite quotient of the (2, 3, 7) triangle group, that is, any non-trivial finite group generated by elements x and y satisfying x 2 = y 3 = ( xy ) 7 = 1. Every such group G is the conformal automorphism group of some compact Riemann surface of genus g > 1, with the property that | G | = 84( g – 1), which is the maximum possible order for given genus g . This paper provides an update on what is known about Hurwitz groups and related matters, following up the author's brief survey in Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 23 (1990). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Groups - Complexity - Cryptology de Gruyter

Abstract

Abstract A Hurwitz group is any non-trivial finite quotient of the (2, 3, 7) triangle group, that is, any non-trivial finite group generated by elements x and y satisfying x 2 = y 3 = ( xy ) 7 = 1. Every such group G is the conformal automorphism group of some compact Riemann surface of genus g > 1, with the property that | G | = 84( g – 1), which is the maximum possible order for given genus g . This paper provides an update on what is known about Hurwitz groups and related matters, following up the author's brief survey in Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 23 (1990).
