Learning Seminar in Representation Stability

Date:  Friday, February 18, 2022
Location:  1866 East Hall (4:00 PM to 4:50 PM)

Title:  On the structure of simple generic FI-modules in positive characteristic

Abstract:   In this talk, I will talk about FI-modules, 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 FI-modules in positive characteristic. In particular, I will show examples of simple generic FI-modules none of whose terms are simple symmetric group representations.
