Location: 213 Richard Berry

Abstract: This is joint work with Srikanth Iyengar on results
that connects work of Mike Hopkins in homotopy theory and commutative
algebra with a theorem of Dave Benson, Jeremy Rickard and myself
on group representations. I will spend most of the lecture talking
about what the words mean and why we are interested in the results.
