Abstract

We prove that if the probabilistic zeta function PG(s) of a finitely generated profinite group G is rational and all but finitely many nonabelian composition factors of G are groups of Lie type in a fixed characteristic or sporadic simple groups, then G contains only finitely many maximal subgroups.
