The central theme of this workshop is the determination and description
of the Morita equivalence classes of blocks of finite groups. Related to
this are for example the study of derived equivalences, source algebras
and the determination of other invariants of a block, as well as the
study of algebras which arise as basic algebras for blocks.
Increasingly the classification of finite simple groups plays a major role, and recent advances in our understanding of the blocks of finite groups of Lie type are particularly important.
The core of the workshop will be five short lecture series on some of the main tools and problems, including blocks of finite groups of Lie type in non-defining characteristic, basic algebras and their computation, Galois conjugacy of blocks, source algebras, and determination of block invariants.
The lecture series will be given by:
Marc Cabanes, Université Paris Diderot
Jon Carlson, University of Georgia
Radha Kessar, City University London
Markus Linckelmann, City University London
Benjamin Sambale, TU Kaiserslautern
Malka Schaps, Bar Ilan University
The lecture series will be supplemented by a programme of invited and contributed conference talks and a discussion session.
The registration to the workshop is open until 3 April 2016. If you are interested in participating, click on "Register" and fill-out the form. The Bernoulli staff will contact you soon after the deadline to confirm acceptance.
