On the generating graph of a simple group
MetadataShow full item record
The generating graph Γ(H) of a finite group H is the graph defined on the elements of H, with an edge between two vertices if and only if they generate H. We show that if H is a sufficiently large simple group with Γ(G) ≅ Γ(H) for a finite group G, then G ≅ H. We also prove that the generating graph of a symmetric group determines the group.
