### Truncated current Lie algebras and their representation theory in positive characteristic.

## Abstract

In this talk I will discuss the representation theory of truncated current Lie algebras in prime characteristic. I will first give an introduction to modular representation theory for general restricted Lie algebras and introduce the Kac-Weisfeiler conjectures. Then I will introduce a family of Lie algebras known as truncated current Lie algebras, and discuss their representation theory and its relationship with the representation theory of reductive Lie algebras in positive characteristic.
