New Beauville surfaces and finite simple groups

Shelly Garion, Matteo Penegini
published 2011-07-27

In this paper we construct new Beauville surfaces with group either PSL(2,q), or belonging to some other families of finite simple groups of Lie type of low Lie rank, or an alternating group, or a symmetric group, proving a conjecture of Bauer, Catanese and Grunewald. The proofs rely on probabilistic group theoretical results of Liebeck and Shalev, on classical results of Macbeath and on recent results of Marion.
