An explicit upper bound for the Helfgott delta in SL(2,p)
MetadataShow full item record
Helfgott proved that there exists a δ>0 such that if S is a symmetric generating subset of SL(2,p) containing 1 then either S3=SL(2,p) or |S3| ≥|S|1+δ. It is known that δ ≥ 1/3024. Here we show that δ ≤(log2(7)-1)/6 ≈ 0.3012 and we present evidence suggesting that this might be the true value of δ.
