DESCRIPTION:In 1977\, Milnor formulated the following conjecture: every di
screte group of affine transformations acting properly on the affine space
is virtually solvable. We now know that this statement is false\; the cur
rent goal is to gain a better understanding of the counterexamples to this
conjecture. Every group that violates this conjecture "lives" in a certai
n algebraic affine group\, which can be specified by giving a linear group
and a representation thereof. Representations that give rise to counterex
amples are said to be non-Milnorian. We will talk about the progress made
so far towards classification of these non-Milnorian representations.\n\nh
