$AGL_n(Q)$ and $PGL_n(Q)$ are maximal-closed Simon, Pierre


In joint work with Itay Kaplan, we show that $AGL_n(Q)$ ($n>1$) and $PGL_n(Q)$ ($n>2$) are maximal amongst closed proper subgroups of the infinite symmetric group. I will present this result and its proof which relies on Adeleke and Macpherson's classification of infinite Jordan groups. I will also mention some open questions.
