Abstract: The theory of p-modular representations of a finite group G for a fixed prime number p was developed by Richard Brauer. One of the main problems in this theory is to classify the p-blocks which form a partition of the set of characters of G. Dade conjectured a formula for the number of characters in a block in terms of characters in blocks in certain subgroups called p-local subgroups of G. This conjecture has been verified for groups such as the finite general linear, special linear, and unitary groups over a field of characteristic p. In this thesis we verify the conjecture for the finite special unitary groups over a field of characteristic p.
