Clifford Theory and quasi-nilpotent subgroups
Friday 28th August, 12-1pm, Carslaw 273.
We use Cliffor theoretic reductions to reduce some
questions about (ordinary and modular) irreducible characters
of finite groups to the generally easier case
when the group is quasi-nilpotent, or in some cases,
quasi-simple. Even in the case of solvable groups, some
apparently new resulst are obtained.
