Homotopy types of group lattices
In this article, we study group lattices using the ideas of K. S. Brown and D. Quillen of associating a certain topological space to a partially ordered set. We determine the exact homotopy type for the subgroup lattice of PSL(2, 7), find a connection between different group lattices, and obtain some estimates for the Betti numbers of these lattices using the spectral sequence method.
