Title: An IBL session on group algebras
Abstract: Because one can never know too much representation theory! We will spend the hour getting to know the structure of group algebras a little bit better. There will be useful problems for all levels. Some topics: characterization of permutation representations, generalizations of Frobenius reciprocity, examples in positive characteristic, the number of irreducible representations defined over not-necessarily-algebraically-closed fields, the Brauer group, and more.
