Pure Maths Colloquium: The module categories of finite groups

Presented by David Craven, University of Birmingham

19 November 2012 16:00 in CM221

An extremely difficult question in the representation theory of finite groups is to understand the structure of the category of finite-dimensional modules.In this talk we will discuss some of the main results in this area, before discussing the case where there are only finitely many indecomposable modules in the category. We end with recent work of Olivier Dudas, Raphael Rouquier and the author, which goes a long way towards classifying all possible module categories of finite groups in this case.
