GRA2 - Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives

Let $G$ be a permutation group acting on a finite set $X$. An orbital graph of $G$ is a graph with vertex set $X$ whose arc set is an orbit of $G$ on $X \times X$. An orbital graph whose arcs are a subset of the diagonal $\{ (x,x) \mid x \in X \}$ is called a diagonal orbital graph. A famous theorem of Higman states that a transitive permutation group $G$ acting on $X$ is primitive if and only if all non-diagonal orbital graphs are (strongly) connected. A description of infinite families of finite primitive permutation groups for which there is a uniform finite upper bound on the (undirected) diameter of all non-diagonal orbital graphs has been given in a paper by Liebeck, Macpherson, Tent. In this talk we will be interested in diameters of orbital graphs of affine primitive permutation groups. This is joint work with Saveliy V. Skresanov
