If you have a question about this talk, please contact Julian Brough. Just infinite groups are a generalisation of finite simple groups in the case of profinite groups and natural examples of just infinite groups have been widely studied in the past. â€‹Wilson type groups were first introduced as an example of hereditarily just infinite groups which are not virtually pro-p. In the first part of the talk I will give some motivation of the importance of this family and I will show the construction of Wilson type groups via iterated exponentiation of finite non-abelian simple groups. In the second part I will address two generation problems: find explicit generators and determine the lower rank of Wilson type groups.
