The learn of finite teams factorised as a fabricated from or extra subgroups has develop into a topic of serious curiosity over the past years with functions not just in staff conception, but additionally in different components like cryptography and coding conception. It has skilled a huge impulse with the creation of a few permutability stipulations.

**Automorphic Representation of Unitary Groups in Three Variables**

The aim of this ebook is to increase the strong hint formulation for unitary teams in 3 variables. The sturdy hint formulation is then utilized to acquire a category of automorphic representations. This paintings represents the 1st case during which the strong hint formulation has been labored out past the case of SL (2) and comparable teams.

Let M be the subspace of co-dimension 1 that is centralized by t1, and let b be a vector not in M. For a transvection t centralising M define ir(t) to be b - bt E M. Let M = S ® T be the A-invariant decomposition of M into a one-dimensional subspace S and a (d - 2)-dimensional subspace T. Our goal is to find a set of (d - 1)k transvections {ti} with centralized subspace M, such that {ir(ti)} is a basis for M < Fqd over the prime field of Fq. Using these transvections it is possible to write any transvection t centralising M as a word in the transvections ti; if -7r(t) = E ai7r(ti) for 0

One of the main applications of the constructive recognition algorithm will be in the following setting. In investigating a matrix group H along the lines of Aschbacher's classification, one ends up with either a classical group, an almost simple group, or a reduction to a smaller group; in the latter case, we get a homomorphism cp of H into S, where S is cyclic, a permutation group, or some matrix group of smaller dimension or over a smaller field. If W(H) is a matrix group containing the special linear group in its natural representation, we can use the constructive algorithm to produce elements of the kernel of W.

Remark: Note that we do not have to raise the element to the power lcm(o(R), o(a)) explicitly, which would require 0(d4 logq) finite field operations. However, although we need only O(q) matrix multiplications to find the transvection, evaluating the corresponding straight line program requires O (q + d log q) multiplications because of this last powering step. We now consider the general case when SL(d, q) < (X) < GL(d, q). If d > 3, the determinant will simply partition the set of suitable elements into subsets of approximate equal cardinality.
