Representation theory and cohomology

Eric Friedlander (USC)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Friday, 14 September 2018 at 4:00PM - 5:00PM

Abstract:  We offer a gentle introduction to one aspect of modular representation theory, accompanied by photographs giving a bit of history. We emphasize the surprising nature of actions on vector spaces over a field of positive characteristic. We touch upon issues of extensions and the role played by cohomology.
