If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Clarke. This talk is about the ordinary (complex) representation theory of finite groups of Lie type. I will begin by carefully reviewing algebraic groups and finite groups of Lie type and the construction and properties of (ordinary) Gelfand-Graev representations. I will then introduce generalized Gelfand-Graev characters, which are constructed using the Lie algebra of the ambient algebraic group. Towards the end I hope to give an idea of how generalized Gelfand-Graev characters can and have been used to attack Lusztig’s conjecture and the role this plays in the determination of the character tables for finite groups of Lie type.
