# Rank 3 Amalgams

Share this page
*Bernd Stellmacher; Franz Georg Timmesfeld*

Let \(G\) be a group, \(p\) a fixed prime,
\(I = {1,...,n}\) and let \(B\) and \(P_i, i \in
I\) be a collection of finite subgroups of \(G\). Then
\(G\) satisfies \(P_n\) (with respect to \(p\),
\(B\) and \(P_i, i \in I\)) if:

(1) \(G = \langle P_i|i \in I\rangle\),

(2) \(B\) is the normalizer of a \(p-Sylow\)-subgroup in \(P_i\),

(3) No nontrivial normal subgroup of \(B\) is normal in \(G\),

(4) \(O^{p^\prime}(P_i/O_p(P_i))\) is a rank 1 Lie-type group in char \(p\) (also including solvable cases).

If \(n = 2\), then the structure of \(P_1, P_2\) was
determined by Delgado and Stellmacher. In this book the authors treat
the case \(n = 3\). This has applications for locally finite,
chamber transitive Tits-geometries and the classification of quasithin
groups.
