Character bounds for finite simple groups

Michael Larsen (Indiana U.)

Location:  Hill Center Room 705
Date & time: Friday, 21 October 2022 at 4:00PM - 5:00PM

Abstract: The absolute value of any character value of a finite group is bounded above by the degree of the character.  There has been a substantial effort to find stronger bounds, with an eye to applications in probability theory and algebraic group theory.  I will talk about recent work on character bounds for finite simple groups and say something about typical applications.
