LMS-Bath Symposium on Categorical and Geometric Representation Theory

University of Bath
Start date
Meeting Date
Organisers: Chris Bowman, Iain Gordon, Radha Kessar, Neil Saunders, Lewis Topley.

The past ten years have been some of the most exciting and fruitful years in the history of representation theory. One of the overarching themes in this story is the search for richer structures which secretly underpin the classical problems in the field- these might manifest themselves as algebraic or geometric structures, or even diagrammatic categories. These richer structures provide us with new intuition and new lines of attack on long-standing open problems.

  • Summer school (02 - 04 August 2023): A three-day intensive summer school, covering both general and specialised topics in geometric and algebraic categorification at a level appropriate for early-career researchers. In order to ensure the success of the summer school, our daily structure will consist of four 1-hour lectures, followed by problem-class and research incubator sessions. The speakers will be Ben Elias (Oregon), Peng Shan (Tsinghua) and Olivier Dudas (Paris VIII). If you would like to apply to attend the summer school then please contact Chris BowmanLewis Topley or Neil Saunders.

Speakers: Noriyuki Abe, Pramod Achar, Karin Baur, Gwyn Bellamy, David Benson, Jon Brundan, Maria Chlouveraki, Maud De Visscher, Olivier Dudas, Ben Elias, Jonathan Gruber, Amit Hazi, Markus Linckelmann, Nicolas Libedinsky, Ivan Losev, Gunter Malle, Vera Serganova, Peng Shan, and Catharina Stroppel.
