Algebra Seminar: Brundan -- The oriented skein category

Jon Brundan (University of Oregon) 

Friday 10 November, 12-1pm, Place: Carslaw 375 

Title: The oriented skein category 

Abstract: I’ll talk about a monoidal category which appeared 30 years ago in work of
Turaev on the HOMFLY-PT link invariant.  The standard way to understand its
representation theory is to use Schur-Weyl duality connecting it to the monoidal
category Rep U_q(gl_n), but it can also be approached directly using a triangular
decomposition.
