"Classifying the Simple Mackey Functors"
Abstract: We review the methods of J.Thevenaz and P.Webb to classify simple Mackey functors. For a finite group G and a field k we discuss their bijective correspondence between irreducible Mackey functors and equivalence classes of pairs (H,V) where H is a subgroup of G and V is a simple kN(H)/H-module. The method makes crucial use of some adjointness properties of induction and inflation.
