Abstract: The analysis of linear algebraic groups with good reduction can
be traced back to the work of G.Harder and B.H.Gross where the focus was
over number fields. In this talk, I will discuss some recent progress in
this direction over more general fields and sketch the ideas behind the
proof of a finiteness theorem on special unitary groups of quaternionic
skew-hermitian forms with good reduction. I will also state some related
conjectures and open problems.
