• #### Calculating conjugacy classes in Sylow p-subgroups of finite Chevalley groups of rank six and seven ﻿

[OWP-2013-10] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-04-10)
Let $G(q)$ be a finite Chevalley group, where $q$ is a power of a good prime $p$, and let $U(q)$ be a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $G(q)$. Then a generalized version of a conjecture of Higman asserts that the number $k(U(q))$ of ...
