Summer school: Representations of Algebraic Groups and Lie Algebras in Characteristic p

Representations of algebraic groups and related structures in their defining characteristic are an active research area with very interesting recent developments. The aim of this summer school is to introduce some of the ideas in this area.

The principal target group consists of advanced PhD students and postdocs.

The program of the summer school consists of lecture series by the three main speakers as well as introductory lectures by some participants.

Moreover, there will be time for individual discussions during the breaks and in the evenings.
