Week starting Monday 15 July 2019

3.30pm 16 July - Algebra and Topology Seminar

Start time: 3.30pm 16 July
Location: Seminar room 1.33, Hanna Neumann Building
Presenter(s): Professor Henning Krause (University of Bielefeld)

From work of Auslander and Reiten we know that the stable category of maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules over a finite dimensional Gorenstein algebra admits a Serre functor. The talk is devoted to an analogue of Grothendieck's local duality in that context, which is induced by Auslander-Reiten duality and employs the action of Hochschild cohomolgy on the category of maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules. This is based on joint work with Benson, Iyengar, and Pevtsova.

4pm 18 July - MSI Colloquium 2019

Start time: 4pm 18 July
Location: Seminar Room 1.33, Building 145, Science Road, ANU  
Presenter(s): Prof Henning Krause, Bielefeld University

The talk is devoted to the study of modular representations of finite groups. I will start with a historical introduction about representation type, explaining the problem of classifying all representations for a given finite group.

The more modern approach involves cohomological techniques and the derived category. Using group cohomology one is able to provide a stratification for the derived category of any finite group. The beautiful connection with tensor triangular geometry will be discussed as well, at least implicitly.

This is a report on joint work with Benson, Iyengar, and Pevtsova.
