Algebra Seminar

Views from Castalia

Ram

Friday 12th July, 12:05-12:55pm, Carslaw 373 (please note the corrected date)

Speaker:

Arun Ram (University of Melbourne)

Title:

Views from Castalia

Abstract:

There are three mountains (the preprojective variety, the quiver variety and the loop Grassmannian). These three mountains feed the spring at their base (the quantum group). At the spring live three nymphs, very similar, but different (the semicanonical basis, the canonical basis and the MV basis). Each of these is nourished by the special nutrients of the corresponding source (the preprojective variety, the quiver variety and the loop Grassmannian). But the shadow of the muses is the same (the MV polytope). And, as we shall see, there is a Glass Bead Game in this story as well.
