In this application of Deligne-Lusztig theory the complete generic character tables of the groups mentioned in the title were computed. This is used to show that certain symplectic groups occur as Galois groups over the rational number field.

An overview of the CHEVIE-system. This should be used as reference when you use CHEVIE for your work. The description of the part implemented in GAP is a bit outdated.

Brauer trees in exceptional groups of Lie type

[BibTeX-Entry] [dvi-file] [postscript-file] [pdf-file]

Here we use the explicit computation of some character values which allow to determine some multiplicities of irreducible representations in certain tensor products.

Generation of simple groups

Lübeck, F. and Malle, G., (2,3)-generation of exceptional groups, J. London Math. Soc., 59 (2), (1999), p. 109--122

[BibTeX-Entry] [dvi-file] [postscript-file] [pdf-file]

Each simple exceptional group of Lie type is generated by an element of order two together with an element of order three. In our proof we use some explicit character values of these groups and information about their maximal subgroups.

We also give generators of certain subgroups. Here are the matrices from the paper in Maple readable format.

Constructive recognition of groups

Lübeck, F., Magaard, K. and O'Brien, E.A. Constructive Recognition of SL3(q), J. Algebra, 316 (2007), p. 619--633

We describe an algorithm for constructing an isomorphism from a group isomorphic to SL3(q) in any (black box) representation to the natural representation as 3x3-matrices, such that elements can be mapped in both directions.

Lübeck, F., Niemeyer, A. C. and Praeger, C. E. Finding involutions in finite Lie type groups of odd characteristic, J. Algebra, 321 (2009), p. 3397--3417

We estimate the proportion of elements of even order 2k in groups of Lie type whose k-th power is an involution with a prescribed structure of its centralizer.

Representations of small degree

Lübeck, F., Smallest degrees of representations of exceptional groups of Lie type, Comm. Algebra, 29 (5) (2001), p. 2147--2169

[BibTeX-Entry] [dvi-file (with hyperlinks)] [postscript-file] [pdf-file]

The first few smallest degrees of projective complex representations of all exceptional simple groups of Lie type are given. Some information on modular representations in non-defining characteristic can be found as well.

Lübeck, F., Small degree representations of finite Chevalley groups in defining characteristic, LMS J. Comput. Math., 4 (2001), p. 135--169

(This is a slightly updated preprint version of January 2016, where a mistake in a statement about Frobenius-Schur indicators is corrected.)

[BibTeX-Entry] [pdf-file]

For all simple finite groups of Lie type we give a list of smallest degrees of representations in defining characteristic (e.g., up to degree 300 for type B2, 100000 for type E8 and for groups of large Lie rank l up to a degree proportional to l3).

Here are additional tables of weight multiplicities for the representations from this paper.

Elementary divisors of integer matrices

The main algorithm here is particularly powerful when the prime divisors of the determinant are known in advance. There is a GAP package EDIM containing implementations of most algorithms mentioned in the paper.
