# Algebra Seminar: Licata -- Homological algebra and the growth of braids

Speaker: Anthony Licata (ANU)

Date: Friday 16 November

Time: 12-13

Venue: Carslaw 375

Title: Homological algebra and the growth of braids

Abstract: We’ll explain some of the tools of homological algebra - for example,
categorical entropy - which are relevant for studying autoequivalences of triangulated
categories.  In the case of braid group actions, we’ll explain the relationship
between categorical entropy and dynamical concepts from classical braid group topology.
