### Algebra Seminar

# Representations of rational Cherednik algebras

### Stewart Wilcox

#### Friday June 25, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

###### Abstract

The rational Cherednik algebra was introduced by Etingof and Ginzburg as a degeneration of Cherednik's ``double affine Hecke algebra". It may also be viewed as a universal deformation of an algebra of differential operators, and the type A rational Cherednik algebra is closely related to the Calogero-Moser space.

In this talk, after briefly introducing the algebra along the above lines, I will discuss results concerning the support sets of its representations, especially in the type A case.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.
