A well-known theorem of Dixon states that two random elements of the alternating group generate almost surely. The best bounds in this theorem depend on the classification of finite simple groups. Let’s see how well we can do without CFSG . I will say some things about why I care, and if I have time I’ll also try to say something about SL(n, q) too.
