Derangements in Finite and Algebraic Groups

Guralnick, RM (Southern California)
Wednesday 24 June 2009, 09:00-10:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


A derangement is a fixed point free permutation. We will consider transitive actions of finite and algebraic groups and the prevalence of derangements. We will discuss the Boston-Shalev conjecture and related problems about conjugacy classes as well as various applications.
