I will try to explain how the Norm map shows up in some different parts of mathematics like in equivariant stable homotopy groups and Witt vectors.
Speaker: Professor Peter Tingley (Loyola University Chicago)
Lusztig's canonical basis is a fairly miraculous object that, among other things, gives a chosen basis for every finite dimensional irreducible representati

Traditionally, the twisted inverse image functor of Grothendieck duality is defined by means of compactification on a class of morphisms between noetherian

The Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism is a theory of gauge symmetry in derived geometry which takes Nöther’s formalism for classical field theories off-shell (th

I'll start by giving a gentle introduction to $A$-infinity algebras and their Hochschild cochains, using a rudimentary graphical calculus.
Speaker: A/Prof. Scott Morrison (MSI, ANU)
Every tensor category has a Drinfeld centre. In nice enough cases, this is a modular tensor category.
