Howe duality for Lie superalgebras.
Thursday 1st February, 12-1pm,
Howe duality is a way to relate the representation theory of a pair
of Lie groups/algebras. The purpose of this talk is to discuss
various dualities involving Lie superalgebras. In particular, after
briefly reviewing the classical GL_nx
GL_m-duality, we will construct dualities involving:
(i) a pair of the finite-dimensional general linear Lie
(ii) the general infinite-dimensional Lie superalgebra and the
finite-dimensional general linear group.
(iii) the infinite-dimensional orthosymplectic Lie superalgebra of
B-type and the Pin group.
Please note that this algebra seminar will
be held on Thursday - not Friday.
