DESCRIPTION:This week's pure postgrad seminar will be given by Claudio Ma
rchi at 3pm in Frank Adams 1.\n\nAbstract:\n\nCharacter theory is a fund
amental tool for studying the structure of finite groups and many intere
sting properties of groups can be derived just from the set of degrees o
f irreducible characters.\n\nThis set is somehow connected to the set of
conjugacy class sizes\, but this connection is far from being completel
y determined.\n\nIn this talk I will give a gentle introduction to chara
cter theory of finite groups\, starting from scratch\, and some motivati
ons for studying characters.\nIn the second part of the talk I will then
present a result that represents the first progress on a conjecture by
Isaacs\, Keller\, Meierfrankenfeld and Moreto on degrees of primitive ch
aracters.
