Dixon's Theorem (Group Theory)
Source of Name
This entry was named for John D. Dixon.
Dixon's Theorem started out as a conjecture made by Eugen Otto Erwin Netto, and published by him in his $1882$ work Substitutionentheorie und ihre Anwendung auf die Algebra.
As a consequence, it was referred to as Netto's Conjecture.
It was finally proved by John D. Dixon in $1967$.
Since then it has been called Dixon's Theorem.
