Derangements in Finite and Algebraic Groups

Presented by: 
RM Guralnick [Southern California]
Date: 
Wednesday 24th June 2009 - 09:00 to 10:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
A derangement is a fixed point free permutation. We will consider transitive actions of finite and algebraic groups and the prevalence of derangements. We will discuss the Boston-Shalev conjecture and related problems about conjugacy classes as well as various applications.
