Algebra Seminar

Graded representation theory of symmetric groups and KLR algebras -- Part II

Alexander Kleshchev

Friday August 20, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

Abstract

We survey some trends in representation theory of symmetric groups and related objects which became apparent in the last years. The emphasis will be on connections with Lie theory via categorification. We present results on branching rules and crystal graphs, decomposition numbers and canonical bases, graded representation theory, connections with cyclotomic and affine Hecke algebras, Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
