If you have a question about this talk, please contact Eugenio Giannelli. Let G be a permutation group on a set X and recall that a subset of X is a base for G if its pointwise stabiliser is trivial. If G has a base of size 2, then we can associate a graph to G, with vertex set X and two points joined by an edge if they form a base. We call this the Saxl graph of G. In this talk I will start with a brief introduction to bases, focussing on primitive groups and probabilistic methods for bounding the minimal size of a base. I will then introduce the Saxl graph and present some of its basic properties (mainly in the context of a finite transitive group). I will finish by discussing some recent results and open problems. This is joint work with Michael Giudici. This talk is part of the Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar
