ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop is a continuation of the instructional workshop ``Classification of Reductive Algebraic Groups" held at the Indian Statistical Institute, Bangalore Centre, during 18th December 2006 - 5th January 2007, in which the classification of reductive algebraic groups over an algebraically closed field, were discussed (roughly the contents of Chapter 1 to 10 of  below).
In this workshop, we plan to discuss rationality questions and given an introduction to the theory of modular representations of reductive algebraic groups over a field of prime characteristic.
Each day of the workshop will have four lecture hours and one hour devoted to examples and exercises.
A potential participant would be a Ph.D. student, or a very advanced M.Sc. student, or a mathematician wanting to learn this subject. The prerequisites for the workshop are:
We will post some notes on these prerequisites for the workshop by the 3rd March 2008. Selected participants are urged to study these notes before the workshop.
