Abstract for Gary Seitz.
-----------------------
 This will be an elementary discussion about
 the analysis of conjugacy classes and the
 structure of centralizers of unipotent elements
 in some familiar groups: GL, Sp, O.  We 
 also discuss connections between unipotent
 and nilpotent elements in associated  Lie algebras
 and, if time permits, hint at how the theory
 extends to more exotic contexts.
