## Towards a lifting of representations of finite reductive groups

##### Abstract:

The problem of understanding base change for p-adic groups forces one to consider a certain generalization of base change for finite groups. I will give an introduction to base change, and give a partial description of this generalization. (This is a preliminary report on joint work with Joshua Lansky.)
