The probability of generating a group
Dr. Russ Woodroofe, Mathematics, Msstate
Title: The probability of generating a group
Blurb: If you pick an element at random from a cyclic group, what is the probability that the group is generated by that element? More generally, if you have any group G, and pick a sequence of elements from G at random, what is the probability that the sequence generates the entire group? We'll show how to answer both of these questions!
