Finite dimensional representations of simple Lie algebras over the complex numbers have been well understood for a long time. However, the representation theory of of Lie algebras of simple algebraic groups over field of positive characteristic is less well understood. We’ll start by surveying the known theory of modular representations of simple Lie algebras including reduced enveloping algebras before explaining Premet’s approach via Walgebras. We’ll focus of the case of the general linear Lie algebra gl_n, and in this case explain joint work with Lewis Topley in which we have classified the minimal dimensional modules for reduced enveloping algebras.
