Classifying Spaces of Sporadic Groups - David J Benson and Stephen D Smith
The Classification of Finite Simple Groups: Groups of Characteristic 2 Type - Michael Aschbacher, Richard Lyons, Stephen D Smith and Ronald Solomon
This book is intended as an overview of a research area that combines geometries for groups (such as Tits buildings and generalizations), topological aspects of simplicial complexes from \(p\)-subgroups of a group (in the spirit of Brown, Quillen, and Webb), and combinatorics of partially ordered sets. The material is intended to serve as an advanced graduate-level text and partly as a general reference on the research area. The treatment offers optional tracks for the reader interested in buildings, geometries for sporadic simple groups, and \(G\)-equivariant equivalences and homology for subgroup complexes.
Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory and algebraic topology.
