Dr Eamonn O'Brien Visits Oxford

<p> Dr Eamonn O'Brien (University of Auckland) is in Oxford on a two and half week visit funded by EPSRC grant GR/S86259/01. During his visit he gave a talk to the Algebra Seminar, and has also given talks in Manchester, Canterbury & Birmingham. During his visit Eamonn O'Brien and Michael Vaughan-Lee have finalized their database of groups of order p^7. They have also settled an old problem on whether every finite p-group can be generated by a set of elements all having the same order - the answer is "No". </p>
