Title: Minimal characteristic bisets for saturated fusion system

Abstract: A \emph{characteristic biset} for the fusion system $\mathcal{F}$ on the $p$-group $S$ is a finite set $\Omega$ with commuting left and right $S$-actions.  $\Omega$ must satisfy certain properties that mimic the left and right multiplications of $S$ on a finite Sylow supergroup inducing $\mathcal{F}$.

The parameterization of $\mathcal{F}$-sets implies the existence of a unique minimal characteristic biset $\Omega_{\mathcal{F}}$, which should be thought of as \emph{the} minimal characteristic biset for $\mathcal{F}$.  In this talk, I will defend this claim by discussing the close connections between $\Omega_{\mathcal{F}}$ and other central notions in $p$-local finite group theory, including $p$-constraint, centric linking systems, and $K$-normalizers.

Title: Irreducible components of p-local compact groups

Abstract: Irreducibility was introduced in earlier work as a criterion to classify all p-local compact groups of rank 1, and could be thought of as an algebraic analog of connectivity. A p-local compact group is said to be irreducible if its underlying fusion system contains no proper normal subsystems of maximal rank. In this talk I will sketch how to show that every p-local compact group has a unique irreducible component, by using group theoretical techniques of Chermak.
