Recognizing Groups G23 n ) by Their Element Orders

  • A. V. Vasilyev


It is proved that a finite group that is isomorphic to a simple non-Abelian group G=G2(3 n ) is, up to isomorphism, recognized by a set ω(G) of its element orders, that is, H ≃ G if ω(H)=ω(G) for some finite group H.

finite group, simple non-Abelian group, recognizability of groups by their element orders.
