There will be an Algebra Seminar on Friday 7 October, given by Jun Hu. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Speaker: Jun Hu (University of Sydney) Date: Friday 7 October Time: 12:05-12:55pm Venue: Carslaw 175 Title: On the annihilators of tensor space in Brauer algebras Abstract: Let X be in {B,C,D}. If X=C, then we set K to be an arbitrary field and V a 2m-dimensional symplectic K-vector space; if X is in {B,D}, then K is an arbitrary field of characteristic not equal to 2 and V an m-dimensional orthogonal K-vector space. Let B_n(-2m), B_n(m) be the corresponding specialized Brauer algebras. In this talk, I shall review results on the annihilators of the n-tensor space V^{\otimes n} in the algebras B_n(-2m), B_n(m). If time allows, I will also mention the quantized cases (i.e., on the specialized Birman-Murakami-Wenzl algebras). ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
