Sheaf theoretic approach to modular representation theory


The talk will focus on the problem of calculating irreducible characters of reductive algebraic groups in positive characteristics. We will describe the original question, discuss some of the recent developments and then conclude by proposing a sheaf theoretic approach to the problem. The last part is about joint work with Peter Fiebig.
