Extending morphisms from finite groups to algebraic groups

David Craven (Birmingham)

Frank Adams 1,

Understanding embeddings of finite groups of Lie type into algebraic groups of the same characteristic has seen a lot of activity over the past couple of decades, in particular the question of whether the embedding extends to an embedding of algebraic groups. In this talk I'll give an overview of the topic, its relation to the maximal subgroup problem for exceptional groups of Lie type, and present some new results in the area.
