• #### Calculating conjugacy classes in Sylow p-subgroups of finite Chevalley groups of rank six and seven ﻿

[OWP-2013-10] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2013-04-10)
Let $G(q)$ be a finite Chevalley group, where $q$ is a power of a good prime $p$, and let $U(q)$ be a Sylow $p$-subgroup of $G(q)$. Then a generalized version of a conjecture of Higman asserts that the number $k(U(q))$ of ...
• #### Cataland: Why the Fuß? ﻿

[OWP-2019-01] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2019-01-21)
The three main objects in noncrossing Catalan combinatorics associated to a finite Coxeter system are noncrossing partitions, clusters, and sortable elements. The first two of these have known Fuß-Catalan generalizations. ...

• #### Cocharacter-closure and spherical buildings ﻿

[OWP-2015-12] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2015-07-29)
Let $k$ be a field, let $G$ be a reductive $k$-group and $V$ an affine $k$-variety on which $G$ acts. In this note we continue our study of the notion of cocharacter-closed $G(k)$-orbits in $V$. In earlier work we used a ...
• #### Cocharacter-Closure and the Rational Hilbert-Mumford Theorem ﻿

[OWP-2014-16] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2014-12-20)
For a field $k$, let $G$ be a reductive $k$-group and $V$ an affine $k$-variety on which $G$ acts. Using the notion of cocharacter-closed $G(k)$-orbits in $V$ , we prove a rational version of the celebrated Hilbert-Mumford ...
• #### Computing Congruence Quotients of Zariski Dense Subgroups ﻿

[OWP-2018-22] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2018-10-26)
• #### On Generalizations of Kac-Moody Groups ﻿

[OWP-2010-06] (Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach, 2010-03-10)
In [7] we define a Curtis-Tits group as a certain generalization of a Kac-Moody group. We distinguish between orientable and non-orientable Curtis-Tits groups and identify all orientable Curtis-Tits groups as Kac-Moody ...
