Algebra Seminar

Fusion categories and finite groups

Grossman

Friday 17th May, 12:05-12:55pm, Carslaw 373

Speaker:

Pinhas Grossman (University of New South Wales)

Title:

Fusion categories and finite groups

Abstract:

The collection of (finite-dimensional) representations of a given group forms a tensor category. Fusion categories are tensor categories which share many properties with the representation categories of finite groups. In addition to finite groups, interesting examples of fusion categories come from quantum groups and from operator algebras.
