Conjugacy classes in a reductive subgroup of a reductive group.

Let G be a reductive algebraic group and let H be a
reductive subgroup of G. Given h \in H, it is
natural to ask whether the Gconjugacy class of h
intersects H in a finite union of Hconjugacy
classes. More generally, we can ask a similar question for an
Ntuple h \in H^{N}.
I conjecture that the answer is yes. In this talk, I will present
some supporting evidence, and discuss some applications of the
conjecture.
