The representation theory of a finite group G over a field F of positive characteristic carries many questions that have not been answered yet. Most of them can be stated as global/local conjectures: in various forms, they state that the representation theory of G is somehow controlled by its p-local subgroups. Here we will mostly focus on one of these conjectures, Broué’s Abelian Defect Group Conjecture, which might be considered as an attempt to give a structural explanation of what is actually connecting G and its local p-subgroups in the abelian defect case. In particular, we explain how the strategy of looking for a perverse equivalence (a specific type of derived equivalence) works successfully in some cases and how this procedure is related to some Deligne-Lusztig varieties.
