Computational Algebra Seminar: Previtali -- Building Characters and Representations for Finite Groups

Speaker: Andrea Previtali
Title: Building Characters and Representations for Finite Groups
Time & Place: 3-4pm, Thursday 29 November, Eastern Ave Rm 311.

Abstract:
I will report on old and new techniques to construct characters and
representations of finite groups.
Since satisfactory algortihms are available for complex characters and
for representations over finite fields,
I will focus on representations over characteristic zero fields and will
touch upon questions concerning Schur indices,
central simple algebras and their minimal splitting fields.
