LMS Groups and their applications triangle meeting

The representation theory for finite groups of Lie type in defining characteristic is rather complicated, but owing to the link with algebraic groups, there are quite a few tools. I want to give an overview of some of the theory and show how some of these can be used to bound the cohomology of finite groups with coefficients in simple modules, motivated by an old conjecture of Guralnick.
