If you have a question about this talk, please contact Gareth Tracey. Any representation of a double cover of a symmetric group $\widetilde{S}_n$ can also be viewed as a representation of $S_n$ when reduced to characteristic 2. However not much is known about the corresponding decomposition matrices. For example, while decomposition numbers of Specht modules indexed by 2-parts partitions are known, the decomposition numbers of spin irreducible modules indexed by 2-parts partitions are still mostly unknown, with in most cases only multiplicities of maximal composition factors (under a certain ordering of the modular irreducible representations) being known. In this talk I will characterise irreducible representations that appear when reducing 2-parts spin representations to characteristic 2 and describe part of the corresponding rows of the decomposition matrices. This talk is part of the Algebra seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- Algebra seminar
