Title:  Taking limits in finite p-groups
 
Abstract:  
 
One of the beautiful aspects of mathematics is the way that
different subjects shed light on each other.  Borel's Fixed
Point Theorem in algebraic group theory asserts that a
solvable algebraic group acting on a set in a particular way
must have a fixed point.  We plan to discuss how special cases
of this theorem have been adapted to yield new results and
open problems for finite p-groups.
 
 (Knowledge of algebraic group theory is not necessary.)
