Finiteness theorems on algebraic groups with good reduction

Srimathy Srinivasan
University of Colorado, Boulder.


The analysis of linear algebraic groups with good reduction can be traced back to the work of G.Harder and B.H.Gross where the focus was over number fields. In this talk, I will discuss some recent progress in this direction over more general fields and sketch the ideas behind the proof of a finiteness theorem on special unitary groups of quaternionic skew-hermitian forms with good reduction. I will also state some important conjectures and open problems in this direction.
