DESCRIPTION:Let G be a semisimple algebraic group over an alge
braically closed field K. At the 1966 ICM in Mosco
w\, Robert Steinberg conjectured that two elements
of G are conjugate if and only if their images ar
e conjugate under every rational irreducible repre
sentation of G. The conjecture was proven by Stein
berg in the case where K has characteristic zero\,
and also in the case where the two elements are s
emisimple. In this talk\, I will present a counter
example which was discovered by computational meth
ods.
