We refer to this extension by G. We firstly determine the conjugacy classes of G using the coset analysis technique. The structures of inertia factor groups were determined. We then compute the Fischer matrices of G and apply the Clifford-Fischer theory to calculate the ordinary character table of this group. The Fischer matrices of G are all integer valued, with sizes ranging from 1 to 4. The full character table of G is 26×26 complex valued matrix and is given at the end of this paper.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4955_802bdf7f6da33cf2887f736c73a0d2e0.pdfAmirkabir University of TechnologyAUT Journal of Mathematics and Computing2783-24494120230201On two generation methods for the simple linear group $PSL(3,7)$2737492910.22060/ajmc.2022.21638.1095ENThekiso TrevorSeretloSchool of Mathematical Sciences, North West University, Mafikeng Branch P/B X2046, Mmabatho 2735, South Africa0000-0003-2834-1942Journal Article20220729A finite group $G$ is said to be \textit{$(l,m, n)$-generated}, if it is a quotient group of the triangle group $T(l,m, n) = \left<x, y, z|x^{l} = y^{m} = z^{n} = xyz = 1\right>.$ In [J. Moori, $(p, q, r)$-generations for the Janko groups $J_{1}$ and $J_{2}$, Nova J. Algebra and Geometry, \bf{2} (1993), no. 3, 277--285], Moori posed the question of finding all the $(p,q,r)$ triples, where $p,\ q$ and $r$ are prime numbers, such that a non-abelian finite simple group $G$ is $(p,q,r)$-generated. Also for a finite simple group $G$ and a conjugacy class $X$ of $G,$ the rank of $X$ in $G$ is defined to be the minimal number of elements of $X$ generating $G.$ In this paper we investigate these two generational problems for the group $PSL(3,7),$ where we will determine the $(p,q,r)$-generations and the ranks of the classes of $PSL(3,7).$ We approach these kind of generations using the structure constant method.

This group has two parts, complement and kernel. Proving that the kernel is a normal subgroup has been a challenging problem and several attempts have been done to prove it.

Although the result is true, the example we gave to show that the bound is sharp turns out to be incorrect. In this paper we find a new bound and we give an example to show that this new bound is sharp.

Using character theory, it is proved that the Frobenius kernel of G is a normal subgroup of G, which is well-known as a Frobenius theorem. There is no known character-free proof for Frobenius theorem. In this note, we prove it, by assuming that Frobenius groups are non-simple. Also, we prove that whether K is a subgroup of G or not, Sylow 2-subgroups of G are either cyclic or generalized quaternion group. Also by assuming some additional arithmetical hypothesis on G we prove Frobenius theorem. We should mention that our proof is character-free.https://ajmc.aut.ac.ir/article_4863_17baeed2919792eebda2064e93cfde61.pdf
