Cyclic sieving »

Tony Licata (ANU)
3pm 30 September 2016

Tony will intrroduce the idea of cyclic sieving, and then we'll all try to work out what connection there is, if any, to tensor categories.

Eigenvalues of rotations and braids in spherical fusion categories »

Dr Corey Jones (MSI, ANU)
3.30pm 27 September 2016

In this talk, we will discuss generalized rotation operators in (spherical) fusion categories, and present formulas for the multiplicities of their eigenvalues in terms of generalized Frobenius-Schur indicators.

Categories enriched in braided tensor categories »

Scott Morrison (ANU)
3pm 23 September 2016

I'll recap last week (I know there will be several participants who missed it), perhaps sketch the classification theorem, or more likely talk about examples.

The Campbell-Baker-Hausdorff adjunction »

Professor Richard Garner (Macquarie University)
3.30pm 20 September 2016

There are a number of ways of deriving the CBH formula, some geometric and some algebraic in nature. The aim of this talk is to describe a categorical approach drawing on synthetic differential geometry.

Expanding curvature flow for convex surfaces in space forms »

Dr Yong Wei (MSI, ANU)
1.30pm 20 September 2016

We consider the convex surfaces expanding in space forms by powers $(0<p\leq 1)$ of a strictly monotone, homogeneous degree one function of its principal curvatures.
