COVID-19 Update

As a result of Covid-19, the seminar for this semester will be a mix of virtual and in-person talks. The default Zoom link for the seminar is https://uwmadison.zoom.us/j/9502605167 (sometimes we will have to use a different meeting link, if Michael K cannot host that day).

Title: Representations of finite groups (Introduction)

Abstract: The talk is not really at the normal level of this seminar; it is closer to the Graduate Algebraic Geometry Seminar. My goal is to sketch the basics of representation theory of groups, especially finite groups. While this is partially covered in our courses, I would like to do it from a slightly different point of view, with the focus on representations themselves rather than on their characters. The talk is aimed at people who already know the definitions and the general ideas, but I will not assume much beyond that.
