Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Regular orbits of Sym(n) and Alt(n) on irreducible representations Other events...
Abstract:

Given a finite group G and a faithful irreducible FG-module V where F is a field of prime order, we can ask whether G has a regular orbit on the vectors of V. This problem is related to determining which primitive permutation groups of affine type have a base of size 2, as well as the famous k(GV)-problem and a conjecture of Brauer concerning defect groups of blocks. We will consider the regular orbit problem for the symmetric and alternating groups.
