    Exploring the structure of matrix groups

    Friday 27th February, 2-3pm, Carslaw 375.

    What sort of structural information can we hope to compute about a group of matrices defined over a finite field? In practice, most questions are very difficult to answer. We mention some of the fundamental problems and outline a relatively new and promising approach.
