Title: Strongly Real Classes in finite Unitary groups.
Abstract of Talk
As oppose to $GL_n(q)$ where all real conjugacy classes are strongly real, it is not quite so for $U_n(q).$ Gow and Vinroot looked at this from representation theory point of view. In this talk we will classify real and strongly real classes in the finite unitary group $U_n(q).$ This is joint work with Zack Gates and Ryan Vinroot.
