Parabolic induction for compact p-adic groups »

Dr Uri Onn, ANU
3.30pm 23 October 2018

A useful approach for studying representations of reductive groups over finite or local fields is to use parabolic induction and restriction that allow one to relate representations of different groups.

Why knot?  »

Dr Joan Licata, Senior Lecturer, Mathematical Sciences Institute, ANU College of Science
5.30pm 11 October 2018

In this special Alumni & Friends event, Dr Joan Licata will explain why you can multiply knots but not add them, and why knot theory may be the key to understanding the shape of the universe.

Functoriality of the Khovanov homology »

Dr Anna Beliakova, University of Zurich
3.30pm 9 October 2018

In 1999 Khovanov assigned to a knot (or link) a complex whose homotopy type is a link invariant and whose Euler characteristic is the Jones polynomial. This construction is known as a categorification of the Jones polynomial.

Patterns of obsession »

Richard Hassell, Founding Director WOHA Singapore

From Kleinian singularities to Khovanov homology »

Professor Catharina Stroppel, University of Bonn
4pm 26 September 2018

In this talk, Prof Catharina Stroppel will make a little tour from the classical theory of singularities in the sense of Felix Klein to modern developments in representation theory.

Highest weight categories - revisited »

Professor Catharina Stroppel (University of Bonn)
3.30pm 25 September 2018

We briefly recall the classical highest weight categories theory (following Cline-Parshall-Scott, Donkin and Ringel) for finite dimensional algebras in a language which allows generalizations to stratified algebras and infinite situations.

Affine Lie algebras and rational Cherednik algebras via the Suzuki functor »

Tomasz Przezdziecki, University of Glasgow/Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, University of Bonn
3.30pm 18 September 2018

The Suzuki functor connects the representation theory of the affine Lie algebra to the representation theory of the rational Cherednik algebra in type A. In this talk we generalize Suzuki's original construction to the critical level case.
