GRA2 - Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives

The proof of the Product Theorem of Breuillard-Green-Tao and Pyber-Szabo is closely related to the CFSG -free proof of Weisfeiler’s theorem on linear groups of bounded rank, due to Larsen-Pink. Ideas from CFSG -free proofs have also been used to obtain results about growth in unbounded rank situations. Somewhat surprisingly we show that, on the other hand, the deep (but CFSG -free) theorem of Breuillard-Green-Tao on non-growing subsets of  arbitrary groups can be used to obtain bounds on the orders of primitive permutation groups.  This is joint work with Sean Eberhard.
