Lagrange's Theorem for Finite Algebraic Groups

Lagrange's Theorem says that every finite group of cardinality n has the property that the n-th power of any of its elements is trivial. It is conjectured that a similar statement holds for finite algebraic groups. In this lecture we explain what finite algebraic groups are and describe the conjecture. We illustrate everything with several examples.
