If you have a question about this talk, please contact Julian Brough. Let G be a finite group. The prime graph of G is a graph with vertex set the set of primes dividing the order of G, and two vertices p and q are adjacent if and only if G contains an element of order pq. This notion has been studied extensively in recent years, with a particular focus on the prime graphs of simple groups. In this talk, I will determine all the pairs (G,H), where G is simple and H is a proper subgroup of G such that G and H have the same prime graph. Moreover, I will show that if G is the alternating group A_n and H is an intransitive subgroup, the problem of determining whether or not they have the same prime graph depends on some formidable open problems in number theory, such as Goldbach’s conjecture.
