"Finite p-groups"

-Abstract
A $p$-group is a group in which every element has order a power of $p$ (where $p$ is a prime). The first part of the seminar is an introduction to this area, and I will give same examples that, in particular, show why $p$-groups play such an important role in the theory of finite groups. In the second part of the seminar, some typical problems that arise in finite $p$-groups theory are presented, with a particular attention to the ones that I studied during my Ph.D.
