Publication History

Published Online:


This is the third in a series of papers whose object is to show how cycle index methods for finite classical groups, developed by Fulman [Jason Fulman. Cycle indices for the classical groups. J. Group Theory 2 (1999), 251–289.], may be extended to other almost simple groups of classical type. In [John R. Britnell. Cyclic, separable and semisimple transformations in the special unitary groups over a finite field. J. Group Theory 9 (2006), 547–569.] we treated the special unitary groups, and in [John R. Britnell. Cyclic, separable and semisimple transformations in the finite conformal groups. J. Group Theory 9 (2006), 571–601.] the general symplectic and general orthogonal groups. In this paper we shall treat various subgroups of the general orthogonal group over a field of odd characteristic. We shall focus at first on Ω± (d, q), the commutator subgroup of Ο±(d, q). Subsequently we shall look at groups G in the range

where Π is the group of non-zero scalars.
