Abstract: Joint work with Carlson, Grodal, Nakano. In this talk we will
present some recent results on an 'important' class of modular
representations for an 'important' class of finite groups. For the
convenience of the audience, we'll briefly review the notion of an
endotrivial module and present the main results pertaining endotrivial
modules and finite reductive groups which we use in our ongoing work.
