Cherlin's conjecture for almost simple groups of Lie rank 1

Submission date: 3 May 2017


We prove Cherlin's conjecture, concerning binary primitive permutation groups, for those groups with socle isomorphic to PSL_2(q), ^2{B}_2(q), ^2{G}_2(q) or PSU_3(q). Our method uses the notion of a “strongly non-binary action”.
