Extractions: Graham Higman is the second son of the Reverend Joseph Higman. He was educated at Sutton Secondary School in Plymouth and won a natural sciences scholarship to study at Balliol College Oxford. He chose Balliol College because that was the College where his elder brother had studied but, since his elder brother had read chemistry, Graham decided he had to be different in some respect and so, despite holding a natural sciences scolarship, he chose to read mathematics. Higman's tutor was Henry Whitehead and it took a while before he realised that Higman was a natural pure mathematician since most students on a natural sciences scholarship would only take mathematics courses to support their science studies. Following a suggestion by Whitehead , Higman founded the Invariant Society (an Oxford undergraduate mathematical society). The first speaker was G H Hardy who addressed the Invariant Society on round numbers. After taking special topic courses on

OUP USA: Existentially Closed Groups OUP Book Existentially Closed Groups by higman, graham Existentially Closed Groups. graham higman, Oxford University, and ELIZABETH SCOTT, The Australian National University, http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0198535430.html
Extractions: In this volume, the athors introduce the theory of existentially closed groups, bringing together both well-established and more contemporary ideas, interpretations, and proofs. They adopt a group-theoretical rather than a model-theoretical point of view as they define existentially closed groups and summarizes some of the techniques that are basic to infinite group theory, such as the formation of free products with amalgamation and HNN-extensions. From this basis the theory is developed and many of the more recently discovered results are proved and discussed.
On A Question Posed By Graham Higman On a Question Posed by graham higman. Gerard M. Enright. (Irish MathematicalSociety Bulletin, Number 28, 1992). Consider a function http://www.mic.ul.ie/maths/gfstring.htm
Extractions: On a Question Posed by Graham Higman Gerard M. Enright (Irish Mathematical Society Bulletin, Number 28, 1992) Consider a function f of the non-negative integers given by the following rules: f(3n) f(3n+1) f(3n+2) is undefined for n = 0, 1, 2, 3, ... Since f(0) = and f(1) = 1, the function may be repeatedly and indefinitely applied to and 1, that is, for z = and 1, f (k) Question: (k) This function was introduced by Professor Graham Higman [1] during a lecture on explicit embeddings of finitely presented groups. He posed the question and he conjectured that the answer was "No". To be precise, he declared "No" to be his "first best guess". In this paper, we will not prove Higman's conjecture but we will produce a good deal of evidence in its favour. Neither will we discuss the group theoretic context in which the question was raised. Instead we present an exploration of the problem as an example of computer-aided mathematics suitable for secondary school and college level students. We use elementary programs in BASIC to obtain data on the function and we use this data in further development of the problem, leading to more efficient programming. Our suggestion is that students' knowledge and understanding of mathematics is reinforced by doing mathematics and that a computer is a very useful tool in this process. We demonstrate the power and scope of electronic computation. We also show its limitations when faced with a great volume of calculations and with very large numbers. (z), f

Extractions: Vincenzo Marra Graham Higman proved that a finitely generated group can be embedded in a finitely presented group iff it has a recursively enumerable set of defining relations. We consider the analogue for lattice-ordered groups. Clearly, the finitely generated lattice-ordered groups that can be l-embedded in finitely presented lattice-ordered groups must have recursively enumerable sets of defining relations. We prove the converse direction for a special class of lattice-ordered groups: iff The technique is an amalgamation of three disparate areas: (1) continued fractions, (2) recent advances in direct limits of Abelian lattice-ordered groups, and (3) using permutation groups to encode the necessary information (a technique whose origins can be found in work of Ralph McKenzie and Richard Thompson).
