Again the Sylow theorems and a summary of the proofs.

Then finite groups of certain orders were classified.

Order p, p prime. Cyclic groups of order p.

Order p * q, p > 2, p < q. Cyclic of order p*q and if p / (q-1): Cq : Cp.

Order 2p, cyclic of order 2p and the Dihedral groups Dp.

Order p^2*q. Started with order 12:

- C12

- C6 X C2

- A4

- D6

- C4 : C3.

I can add that

- A4 = ( C2 X C2 ) : C3.

Gross sofar never talked about GAP, Mathematica, Magma or Maple. Group theory can get very complicated without the aid of a mathematics package. The groups were classified solely on the basis of the Sylow theorems in this lecture. The semi-direct product has not been lectured yet. For those new I would say these lectures were real hard. Unnecessarily hard in my opinion. The next lecture is about the Symmetry group by a famous number theory guy ( forgot his name ).

Anyway, I discovered an interesting fact about S6 today, the symmetry group on 6 letters. It is the only symmetric group whose automorphism group is not eqaul to the group itself. - Now, why would that be? Seems like some deep fact to me. - This is were mathematics gets a grip on you. You must know why.
