Yet more on finite groups with few defining relationsElementary proof of the simplicity of sporadic groups; Fricke, free groups and SL2; Hecke operators and non congruence subgroups; Contributed papers; Soluble groups which are the product of a nilpotent and a polycyclic subgroup; The tame range of automorphism groups and GLn; Universal groups, binate groups and acyclicity; Residual solvability of the unit groups of group algebras; Stabilisers of injective modules over nilpotent groups; Fitting classes after Dark; On groups related to Fibonacci groups
Summary The series is aimed specifically at publishing peer reviewed reviews and contributions presented at workshops and conferences. Each volume is associated with a particular conference, symposium or workshop. These events cover various topics within pure and applied mathematics and provide up-to-date coverage of new developments, methods and applications
