Title: On the structure of simple generic FImodules in positive characteristic
Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about FImodules, meaning functors from the category of finite sets and injections into the category of vector spaces over a given field. I will explain my recent work describing a bijective correspondence between simple representations of finite symmetric groups and simple objects in the category of FImodules in positive characteristic. In particular, I will show examples of simple generic FImodules none of whose terms are simple symmetric group representations.
