Lectures on finite W-algebras and primitive ideals

Finite W-algebras and primitive ideals

Jon Brundan

This series of four talks should provide an introduction to primitive ideals in universal enveloping algebras and the relatively new theory of finite W-algebras. I will focus just on the (easy) type A case where there are also some interesting connections to Yangians. My goal is to make the lectures accessible to graduate students who have taken an introductory course in Lie algebras.
