Algebra Seminar

Diagonal reduction algebras

Oleg Ogievetsky

Friday November 19, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

Abstract

Let g be a Lie algebra and f its reductive Lie subalgebra. The branching rules of decompositions of g-modules into sums of f-modules are conveniently described with the help of a certain algebra, associated to the pair (g,f), called "reduction" algebra. I will illustrate on (possibly) simple examples the general structure of reduction algebras and tools to work with them. If time allows, I will say some words about diagonal reduction algebras which are related to decompositions of tensor products of irreps of reductive Lie algebras into the direct sums of irreps.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.
