If you have a question about this talk, please contact INI IT. GRAW01 - Introductory/instructional workshop In the 40 years since the Classification of Finite Simple Groups was first (tentatively) announced, our understanding of finite permutation groups has been radically transformed: previously untouchable classical problems have been solved, many new classifications produced, and applications to a wide area of mathematics, from number theory to computer science, have been developed. In this lecture I will outline the theory of finite permutation groups and explain how, using the O'Nan—Scott Theorem, CFSG can be brought to bear on various questions. In some cases, proofs avoiding CFSG have subsequently been found; but there are some interesting challenges where this has not so far proved possible.
