The finite teams of Lie style are of crucial mathematical significance and the matter of realizing their irreducible representations is of significant curiosity. The illustration concept of those teams over an algebraically closed box of attribute 0 was once constructed by way of P.Deligne and G.Lusztig in 1976 and for this reason in a chain of papers through Lusztig culminating in his publication in 1984. the aim of the 1st a part of this publication is to offer an summary of the topic, with no together with exact proofs. the second one half is a survey of the constitution of finite-dimensional department algebras with many define proofs, giving the fundamental idea and techniques of building after which is going directly to a deeper research of department algebras over valuated fields. An account of the multiplicative constitution and lowered K-theory offers contemporary paintings at the topic, together with that of the authors. hence it varieties a handy and intensely readable creation to a box which within the final 20 years has obvious a lot progress.

In fact if p is a bad prime there need not be a bijective correspondence between unipotent classes in G and nilpotent orbits in L( G). Thus we have two separate classification problems. Information about the classification when p is a bad prime can be found in Carter [2]. 1. 8 Unipotent Classes of GF We now suppose G is simple of adjoint type and that F: G -+ G is a Frobenius map. We consider unipotent classes in the finite group GF . If x is any element of GF there is a bijective correspondence between GF _ conjugacy classes of F-stable G-conjugates of x and F-conjugacy classes in ~G(x)/~G(x)o.

This formula shows how the character values can be determined by making use of the Jordan decomposition. Let g E GF have Jordan decomposition g = su = us where s, U E GF, S is semisimple and U is unipotent. Then we have R T,O () g 1 = I~(S)OFI "e( x XtGF -1 SX )Q~(S)O 1( ) xTx- U x-1sxeTF In this formula Q:¥~~,(U) is a Green function for the connected reductive group We note that xTx- 1 is a maximal torus of ~(s)O and that U is a unipotent element of (~(s)Ot. Thus if all the Green functions are known the character values RT,o(g) can in principle be determined.

E is distinguished if and only if dim g(O) = dim g(2). Moreover the weighted Dynkin diagram of a distinguished nilpotent element contains only O's and 2's. It is therefore possible to associate with each orbit of distinguished nilpotent elements a parabolic subgroup P of G. P is given by P = (B, X_,,(O(, y) = 0 0( Ell). Thus P is the parabolic subgroup containing B whose Levi subgroup comes from the part of the Dynkin diagram labelled by O's. A parabolic subgroup P is called distinguished if dim P/Up = dim Up/U; where Up = Ru(P).
