We present a version of a proof by Andy Chermak of the existence and uniqueness of centric linking systems associated with arbitrary saturated fusion systems. This proof differs from the one in [Ch2] in that it is based on the computation of derived functors of certain inverse limits. This leads to a much shorter proof, but one which is aimed mostly at researchers familiar with homological algebra.
The analyticity of the Stokes semigroup with the Dirichlet boundary condition is established in spaces of bounded functions when the domain occupied with fluid is bounded or more generally admissible which admits a special estimate for the Helmholtz decomposition. The proof is based on a blow-up argument. This is the first proof of the analyticity in spaces of bounded functions which was left open more than thirty years.
We introduce objective partial groups, of which the linking systems and p-local finite groups of Broto, Levi, and Oliver, the transporter systems of Oliver and Ventura, and the -localities of Puig are examples, as are groups in the ordinary sense. As an application we show that if is a saturated fusion system over a finite p-group then there exists a centric linking system having as its fusion system, and that is unique up to isomorphism. The proof relies on the classification of the finite simple groups in an indirect and—for that reason—perhaps ultimately removable way.
