Finite reductive groups and their irreducible characters - 1

Presented by: 
Olivier Dudas
Date: 
Monday 6th January 2020 - 10:00 to 11:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
In these talks I will present some of the results of Lusztig from the 80's about the classification of irreducible characters of finite reductive groups. Starting from the example of GL(n,q) and Sp(4,q), I will explain the relation between Lusztig's classification and the geometry of conjugacy classes in the Langlands dual group.
