Overview

This book is an outgrowth of a Research Symposium on the Modular Representation Theory of Finite Groups, held at the University of Virginia in May 1998. The main themes of this symposium were representations of groups of Lie type in nondefining (or cross) characteristic, and recent developments in block theory. Series of lectures were given by M. Geck, A. Kleshchev and R. Rouquier, and their brief was to present material at the leading edge of research but accessible to graduate students working in the field. The first three articles are substantial expansions of their lectures, and each provides a complete account of a significant area of the subject together with an extensive bibliography. The remaining articles are based on some of the other lectures given at the symposium; some again are full surveys of the topic covered while others are short, but complete, research articles. The opportunity has been taken to produce a book of enduring value so that this is not a conference proceedings in the conventional sense. Material has been updated so that this book, through its own content and in its extensive bibliographies, will serve as an invaluable resource for all those working in the area, whether established researchers or graduate students who wish to gain a general knowledge of the subject starting from a single source.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Eleven essays are presented as an outgrowth of a 1998 Symposium on the Modular Representation Theory of Finite Groups held at the U. of Virginia. The essays explore the modular representations of groups of Lie type in nondefining characteristic, in p articular the relationship with -Schur algebras, James' conjecture for groups of type , and generalizations to the representations of the groups of other types. The relationship of -Schur algebras to the quantization of other algebras and connections with modular representations of symmetric groups are examined. Further material discusses Broué's conjectures on equivalences of derived categories of modules in blocks with abelian defect group in groups of Lie type, derived and Rickard equivalences, and the corresponding problems for abstract finite groups.
