# Local Fusion Graphs for Symmetric Groups

Ballantyne, John J and Greer, Nicholas M and Rowley, Peter J (2012) Local Fusion Graphs for Symmetric Groups. Journal of Group Theory. (In Press)

For a group $G$, $\pi$ a set of odd positive integers and $X$ a set of involutions of $G$ we define a graph $\mathcal{F}_\pi(G,X)$. This graph, called a $\pi$-local fusion graph, has vertex set $X$ with $x,y \in X$ joined by an edge provided $x \neq y$ and the order of $xy$ is in $\pi$. In this paper we investigate $\mathcal{F}_\pi(G,X)$ when $G$ is a finite symmetric group for various choices of $X$ and $\pi$.
