The book contains extended versions of seven short lecture courses given during a semester programme on "Local Representation Theory and Simple Groups" held at the Centre Interfacultaire Bernoulli of the EPF Lausanne. These focussed on modular representation theory of finite groups, modern Clifford theoretic methods, the representation theory of finite reductive groups, as well as on various applications of character theory and representation theory, for example to base sizes and to random walks.
These lectures are intended to form a good starting point for graduate students and researchers who wish to familiarize themselves with the foundations of the topics covered here. Furthermore they give an introduction to current research directions, including the state of some open problems in the field.
