In combinatorics, the ‘nicest’ way to prove that two sets have the same size is to find a bijection between them, giving more structure to the seeming numerical coincidences. In representation theory, many of the outstanding conjectures seem to imply that the characteristic p of the ground field can be allowed to vary, and we can relate different groups and different primes, to say that they have ‘the same’ representation theory. In this talk I will try to make precise what we could mean by this.
