Worshop at the Centre Intrafacultaire Bernoulli (EPFL)

Posted on 2016-07-30

I was an academic visitor for about 3 weeks in July 2016 at the Centre Intrafacultaire Bernoulli, l’École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) during the program on Local Representation Theory and Simple Groups organized by Donna Testerman (EPFL), Gunter Malle (TU Kaiserslautern), and Radha Kessar (City University London).

I enjoyed following lectures by Markus Linckelmann (City University London), Meinolf Geck (Universität Stuttgart), Marc Cabanes (Université Paris Diderot), Britta Späth (Bergische Universität Wuppertal), and Olivier Dudas (Université Paris Diderot) on - among other things - block theory, and aspects of the Deligne-Lusztig description of representations of finite reductive groups.
