Algebra Seminar

Symmetric group algebras, Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras and Specht modules

Lyle

Please note the revised time and location
Friday 12th April, 12:05-12:55pm, Carslaw 373

Speaker:

Sinéad Lyle (University of East Anglia)

Title:

Symmetric group algebras, Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras and Specht modules

Abstract:

The Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras are certain \(\mathbb{Z}\)-graded algebra which have been shown to be isomorphic to the cyclotomic Hecke algebras of type \(G(l,1,n)\), one example of which is the symmetric group algebra. As a consequence, we have a grading on the symmetric group algebra. The Specht modules have been shown to be graded, so as a consequence, we may talk about graded decomposition numbers.

In this talk, we introduce the KLR algebras and discuss some aspects of their representation theory.

We will take the speaker to lunch after the talk.
