RA1, RA2 and RA5c: Staff and output details and Category C staff circumstances


Camina, AR - Category : C

RA5c - Category C staff circumstances:

Professor Alan Camina has held the position of Honorary Professor in the School of Mathematics since his retirement from UEA in September 2001. He has office space in the School, regularly attends research seminars, and continues to give the School as his address on research publications.There are two main themes to Camina's research plans, both of which are part of long-term programmes. The first is the classification of finite linear spaces and the groups which can act on them as line-transitive automorphism groups. Recently, with A. Zalesski and N Gill (Cambridge), he has shown that if an almost simple groups acts in this way then its rank has to be 'small'. However there is a lot of work to close the gap between the known examples and 'small'. The other theme is the relation between the structure of a finite group and the sizes of the conjugacy classes. Jointly with R. Camina (Cambridge) it has been shown that the possibilities for such groups if the common divisor graph is without triangles is very restricted. One difficult but interesting problem would be to see whether solubility could be recognised from such data (it is known that nilpotency cannot be).
