Computing with conjugacy classes in classical groups

Presented by: 
Martin Liebeck
Friday 31st January 2020 - 14:45 to 15:35
INI Seminar Room 1
I will discuss some theory and algorithms for performing the following tasks with unipotent elements of finite classical groups:
(1) writing down conjugacy class representatives
(2) computing centralizers
(3) solving the conjugacy problem, and finding conjugating elements.
