CalTitle1: Challenges in the representation theory of finite groups

Auth: leo@cpe-121-211-99-151.hhui5.cht.bigpond.net.au (ltzo2369) in SMS-WASM

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).
