Title: On the generation of the Conway Groups by Conjugate Involutions

Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: Let G be a finite group generated by conjugate involutions, and let i(G) = min{|X|}, where X runs over the sets of conjugate involutions generating G. Of course i(G) ≤ 2 implies G is cyclic or dihedral. However, the problem of determining those G for which i(G) > 2 is much more intricate. In this note, we prove that i(G) ≤ 4, where G is one of the Conway’s sporadic simple group. The computations were carried out using the computer algebra system GAP [15].
