`Small' Representations of Finite Groups
Shamgar Gurevitch: University of Wisconsin
Location: Hill 525
Date & time: Tuesday, 21 February 2017 at 2:00PM - 2:11PM
This talk discusses a joint project with Roger Howe (Yale). We introduce a language to speak about â€œsizeâ€ù of a representation, and we develop a method for systematically construct (conjecturally all the) ''small'' representations of finite classical groups.
We will illustrate our theory with concrete motivations and numerical data obtained with John Cannon (MAGMA, Sydney) and Steve Goldstein (Scientific computing, Madison).
