Algebra Seminar

Endotrivial modules for group schemes

Jon Carlson

24th October, 12:05-12:55pm, Carslaw 159


In joint work with Dan Nakano, we attempt a classification of endotrivial modules for finite group schemes. The endotrivial module form part of the Picard group of self equivalences of the stable category of module over the scheme. Of particular interest is the case of the infinitesimal subgroups of algebraic groups.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
