Finite Simple Groups and Applications
The classification of finite simple groups is of fundamental importance in mathematics. It is also one of the longest and most complicated proofs in mathematics.
We will very briefly discuss the result and a bit of history and then explain how it can and has been used to solve problems in many areas. We will end with mentioning some specific and perhaps surprising consequences in various fields.
