can be found here: http://people.mpim-bonn.mpg.de/geordie/sydney/

Time and place:
Tuesdays 11 to 1, Carslaw room 707A
Fridays 12 to 1, Carslaw LT 373

Starting: Friday October 4.

Title: Soergel bimodules and representation theory

Abstract: This course will be an introduction to Soergel bimodules, with emphasis on 
applications in representation theory. The main topics will be generators and relations 
for Soergel bimodules, the proof of Soergel’s conjecture using ideas from Hodge theory, 
and the use of Soergel bimodules to produce counterexamples to conjectures of Lusztig 
and James. Much of what I will talk about is either due to Soergel, or is joint work 
with Ben Elias. Throughout the course I will try to emphasise unsolved problems and 
aspects where new research can be done
