    Spetses I: Cyclotomic Hecke algebras.

    Friday 12th February, 12-1pm, Carslaw 375.

    I want to give a survey of known and conjectured properties of cyclotomic Hecke algebras, that is, the natural generalization of Hecke algebras to the context of complex reflection groups.

    Spetses II: Reflection data.

    Friday 26th February, 12-1pm, Carslaw 375.

    I will report on reflection data, which are in some sense a generalization of the root data of reductive algebraic groups, where the Weyl group has been replaced by an arbitrary complex reflection group.
