Prof.T. Shoji is going to give his final lecture "Characters, character sheaves and beyond" as a Nagoya Univeristy staff on Wednesday, 13:00-14:00. Updated Info He confirmed that he is going to talk in ENGLISH on the contrary to the previous announcement on his final lecture. The room for talk is identical with the conference one, Sci Bld 1-509. (Sorry for the previous confusing information.)

  Professor Toshiaki Shoji is going to retire from Nagoya university at the end of March 2012. Professor Shoji's many remarkable contributions to representation theory, and the Representation Theory of Chevalley groups (finite groups of Lie type) in particular, include his proof of Lusztig's conjecture on the character values of finite Chevalley groups with connected centres. On this occasion, we shall host conference on Professor Shoji's research area and related topics. This conference will focus on representations of Chevalley groups and related topics.
