Und dann erst kommt der "Ab -ge - sa. ng\' da. /3 der nidlt kurz und nicht zu la. ng, From "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg", Richard Wagner This final volume is concerned with some of the developments of the subject in the 1960's. In attempting to determine the simple groups, the first step was to settle the conjecture of Burnside that groups of odd order are soluble. The proof that this conjecture was correct is much too long and complicated for presentation in this text, but a number of ideas in the early stages of it led to a local theory of finite groups, so me aspects of which are discussed in Chapter X. Much of this discussion is a con tinuation of the theory of the transfer (see Chapter IV), but we also introduce the generalized Fitting subgroup, which played a basic role in characterization theorems, that is, in descriptions of specific groups in terms of group-theoretical properties alone. One of the earliest and most important such characterizations was given for Zassenhaus groups; this is presented in Chapter XI. Characterizations in terms of the centralizer of an involution are of particular importance in view of the theorem of Brauer and Fowler. In Chapter XII, one such theorem is given, in which the Mathieu group 9J'l1l and PSL(3, 3) are characterized.

In der Anfängervorlesung "Lineare Algebra" lernt der Student ein umfang reiches System von Begriffen und Ergebnissen kennen. Auf die Bedeutung dieser Theorie für die ganz"e t1athematik wird er zwar oft hingewiesen, aber vorgeführt werden meist nur Anwendungen aus der Geometrie. Das vorliegende kleine Heft ist äer Versuch, ein anderes Gebiet für die Motivierung der Anfängervorlesung zu erschließen, nämlich die Theorie der stochastischen Prozesse mit endl~ch vielen Zuständen in matrizen theoretischer Behandlung. Unsere Darstellung steht zwischen den sehr elementar gehaltenen Büchern (mitunter mit dem Titel "Finite Mathema tics"), die zum Teil für Nichtmathematiker geschrieben sind und nur Elemente der Linearen Algebra verwenden, und den allgemeinen Theorien der stochastischen Prozesse, welche dem endlichen Spezialfall oft wenig Raum widmen. Sie stützt sich weitgehend auf die Betrachtung der Eigen werte von stochastischen Matrizen. Obwohl die Bestimmung der Eigenwerte nicht direkt ein Teil des Problems ist, scheint uns das Studium der Eigenwerte den besten Aufschluß über das Verhalten der Potenzen einer stochastischen Matrix zu geben. (Wir sind uns dessen bewußt, daß diese Methode freilich für stochastische Prozesse mit unendlich vielen Zustän den völlig versagt. ) Nach der Erörterung der Problemstellung und einigen Beispielen in § 1 werden in § 2 alle später benötigten Aussagen über die Eigenwerte von stochastischen Matrizen hergeleitet. Darauf folgen dann in § 3 leicht die Konvergenzsätze. In § 4 behandeln wir weitere Sätze über die Eigen werte von stochastischen Matrizen, die jedoch später kaum mehr verwen det werden.
