Blocks of Finite Groups

Pornrat Ruengrot
Mahidol University International College

16:00 Wednesday 22 March 2017, Room 3303, MUIC


Block theory plays a central role in the modular representation theory of a finite group. Instead of studying representations of the whole group algebra, we can study representations of each of its blocks, which usually are smaller in dimension. In this talk we will discuss the classification of representations of a finite group into blocks (mainly from the character point of view). Worked examples will be given.
