Title: The modular isomorphism problem and how not to solve it.
A central theme in group representation theory is to ask which properties of a
group are reflected in its group algebras over various fields. The Modular
Isomorphism Problem is one such question and goes back to Higman and Brauer.
In this talk I will describe the Modular Isomorphism Problem together with a
generalization, using the notion of separable equivalence. This generalization
takes us out of the realm of group theory, and can be expressed simply using the
language of rings and algebras.
