DESCRIPTION:In the 40 years since the Classification of Finite
Simple Groups was first (tentatively) announced\,
our understanding of finite permutation groups ha
s been radically transformed: previously untouchab
le classical problems have been solved\, many new
classifications produced\, and applications to a w
ide area of mathematics\, from number theory to co
mputer science\, have been developed. In this lect
ure I will outline the theory of finite permutatio
n groups and explain how\, using the O'\;Nan--S
cott Theorem\, CFSG can be brought to bear on vari
ous questions. In some cases\, proofs avoiding CFS
G have subsequently been found\; but there are som
e interesting challenges where this has not so far
proved possible.
