MATH Seminar: “Endotrivial modules for finite groups of Lie type”, Nadia Mazza, 1:30PM April 3 2024 (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Algebra Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Nadia Mazza (Lancaster University)

“Endotrivial modules for finite groups of Lie type.”

Abstract: Let G be a finite group and k a field of positive characteristic p diving the order of G. An endotrivial kG-module is a finitely generated kG-module which is “invertible” in some suitable sense. Since the late 70s, these modules have been intensely studied in modular representation theory. In this talk, we review the essential background on endotrivial modules, and present some results about endotrivial modules for finite groups of Lie type, obtained jointly with Carlson, Grodal and Nakano.
