Assumed Results about Particular Groups

  • Robert L. GriessJr.
Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


We hope that the reader has some familiarity with elementary homological algebra. We begin with a survey of elementary useful results from group extension theory. Later, we focus on particular extensions which come up in our theory of sporadic groups. For general reference, we suggest [Ben], [Gru], [HiSt], [MacL], [Rot].
