Abstract

A saturated fusion system consists of a finite p-group S, together with a category which encodes "conjugacy" relations among subgroups of S, and which satisfies certain axioms which are motivated by properties of the fusion in a Sylow p-subgroup of a finite group. We describe here new ways of constructing abstract saturated fusion systems, first as fusion systems of spaces with certain properties, and then via certain graphs.
