Hans Wenzl (University of California - San Diego) Friday 17 November, 12-1pm, Place: Carslaw 375 Title: Centralizer algebras for spin representations Abstract: Let U be the semi-direct product of the quantum group of so_2k with Z_2, where the Z_2 action is given via the graph automorphism on D_k. Let S be the spinor representation of U. Then there exist actions of U and of the non-standard q-deformation of so_n on S^{otimes n} which generate each others commutants. A similar statement also holds for the quantum group of so_N with N odd.
