# Joint Colloquium: Williamson -- Challenges in the representation theory of finite groups

This will be a talk about the representation theory of finite groups.  Over the last
forty years there have been fascinating developments in the theory of modular (i.e.
characteristic p) representations, and many basic questions are still open.  I will try
to emphasise connections to other fields (number theory, algebraic topology, algebraic
geometry).
