Cohomology of Finite General Linear Groups

David Sprehn*, University of Washington Seattle (Graduate Student)
Talk Abstract: 
I will give a survey of what's known (very little!) about the mod-p cohomology of the general linear groups over finite fields of order $p^r$. I'll briefly describe a recent construction of a new class in (lowest possible) degree $r(2p-3)$, valid more generally for finite groups of Lie type.
