Stratification of representations of finite groups

The talk is devoted to the study of modular representations of finite groups. I will start with a historical introduction about representation type, explaining the problem of classifying all representations for a given finite group.

The more modern approach involves cohomological techniques and the derived category. Using group cohomology one is able to provide a stratification for the derived category of any finite group. The beautiful connection with tensor triangular geometry will be discussed as well, at least implicitly.

This is a report on joint work with Benson, Iyengar, and Pevtsova.
