Abstract

Let G<GL(V) be a finite group, and let V be a finite-dimensional vector space over a field F.  Then G acts as a group of automorphisms on S(V) ,the symmetric algebra of V.

We shall consider the following question: When is S(V)^G, the subring of G- invariants, a polynomial ring?  This had been completely settled by Shephard-Todd- Chevalley-Serre, if (char F,|G|)=1,and is still open otherwise.

We shall describe our recent solution to this problem for G< SL(V).

As an application we shall present the connection between isolated quotient singularities S(V)^G, when char F > 0, and their complex counterparts.
