Joint Colloquium: Henrique Bursztyn -- Lie theory and geometry of groupoids Speaker: Prof. Henrique Bursztyn Time: Fri, 31/01/2014 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm Room: RC-4082, Red Centre Building, UNSW ----------------------------------------------- Title: Lie theory and geometry of groupoids Abstract:The talk will give a general introduction to Lie algebroids and Lie groupoids, mostly through examples. These objects permeate mathematics and can be naturally found in a variety of contexts (such as topology, foliations, Poisson geometry, group actions, in the transition from classical to noncommutative geometries etc). I will emphasize Lie-theoretic aspects of the theory, illustrating when/how known results for Lie algebras and Lie groups carry over to the realm of algebroids and groupoids, and comment on recent results and applications. ----------------------------------------------- Joint Colloquium web site: http://www.maths.usyd.edu.au/u/SemConf/JointColloquium/index.html
