Conference in Manchester for Geoffrey Robinson's 60th birthday
On 2nd-6th September 2013 there will be a Heilbronn Day on "Groups and Their Representations", and a conference on "Brauer's Problems - 50 years on", celebrating Geoffrey Robinson's 60th birthday. Click here for details.

MATH10111 Sets, Numbers and Functions.
Research interests
Representation theory of finite groups, especially modular representation theory
