John Bray’s publications

Co-authors

I have published joint MathSciNet-able papers with the following. The Erdös numbers of the people in this list are either 2 (for RTC and RAW) or 3 (the rest, and me). I have joint non-paper publications with the following people, in addition to those people appearing above.

Theses

  1. MPhil (Sc, Qual): Symmetric Presentations of Finite Groups. (June 1995.)
  2. PhD: Symmetric Presentations of Sporadic Groups and Related Topics. (September 1997.)

Books

This is highly unlikely for the foreseeable future.

Work in Preparation, and Other Miscellaneous

  1. My publications via MathSciNet (Bielefeld) - that is if it works.

Research

My research is mainly in the area of finite groups, especially computational aspects, with forays into other areas. See my research page for more details.
