If you have a question about this talk, please contact David Craven. This talk addresses the problem of deciding whether two classes of similar matrices contain elements which commute. I shall indicate how, over a finite field, this problem reduces (up to a field extension) to the case of nilpotent classes. The nilpotent case has been studied extensively, but chiefly over algebraically closed fields, particularly in characteristic 0. I shall describe what is known about it over various fields, and mention some open questions which have recently attracted attention.
