Representations and Unipotent Classes

Presented by: 
Jay Taylor
Tuesday 7th January 2020 - 16:30 to 17:30
INI Seminar Room 1
In the representation theory of finite reductive groups unipotent classes play a prominent role. In this talk I will illustrate why this is the case. Specifically I will present work of Kawanaka and Lusztig and explain to some extent how these fit together. Examples will be our guide, with the focus being on GL_n(q) and Sp_4(q).
