Modular Representation Theory
Date: 30 September - 4 October 2019
Location: Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
Event type: CRC Workshop
Organisers: Geordie Williamson (Sydney), Ivan Losev (Yale), Matthew Emerton (Chicago)
Modular representation theory is the study of representations of groups and related algebras over fields of positive characteristic. It was initially developed by Brauer, with a view towards the structure of finite groups. Over the last decades it has grown into a deep and beautiful subject with connections to number theory, the Langlands program and algebraic geometry.
The goal of this workshop is to explore the breadth of modern modular reprensentation theory. There will be talks from relevant areas including: mod p Langlands correspondence, deformations of Galois representations, modular representations of algebraic groups, Lie algebras and p-adic groups, modular Deligne-Lusztig theory, and local-global conjectures in finite groups.
