Abstract / Description of output

We show that the only finite quasi-simple non-abelian groups that can faithfully act on rationally connected threefolds are the following groups: A5, PSL2(F7), A6, SL2(F8), A7, PSp4(F3), SL2(F7), 2.A5, 2.A6, 3.A6 or 6.A6.

All of these groups with a possible exception of 2.A6 and 6.A6 indeed act on some rationally connected threefolds.
