Conjugacy classes in a reductive subgroup of a reductive group.
Friday October 19, 12-1pm,
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 G-conjugacy class of h
intersects H in a finite union of H-conjugacy
classes. More generally, we can ask a similar question for an
N-tuple h \in HN.
I conjecture that the answer is yes. In this talk, I will present
some supporting evidence, and discuss some applications of the
