Summer Graduate School — New Directions in Representation Theory
20 Jun 2022 - 02 Jul 2022 • University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MRSI)
Representation Theory has undergone a revolution in recent years, with the development of what is now known as higher representation theory. In particular, the notion of categorification has led to the resolution of many problems previously considered to be intractable. The school will begin by providing students with a brief but thorough introduction to what could be termed the “bread and butter of modern representation theory”, i.e., compact Lie groups and their representation theory; character theory; structure theory of algebraic groups. We will then continue on to a number of more specialized topics. The final mix will depend on discussions with the prospective lecturers.
