On Recognition by Spectrum of Finite Simple Linear Groups over Fields of Characteristic 2

A finite group G is said to be recognizable by spectrum, i.e., by the set of element orders, if every finite group H having the same spectrum as G is isomorphic to G. We prove that the simple linear groups L n (2k) are recognizable by spectrum for n = 2m ≥ 32.
