Algebra Seminar

The representation type of cyclotomic q-Schur algebras

Kentaro Wada

28th November, 12:05-12:55pm, Carslaw 159


In this talk, I give a necessary and sufficient condition on parameters for cyclotomic q-Schur algebras to be of finite representation type. In order to prove it, we use some structures of cyclotomic q-Schur algebras obtained in my previous work with T. Shoji. Thanks to these structures, we should consider only special cases to prove infiniteness. On the other hand, in o rder to prove finiteness, we show that each block of cyclotomic q-Schur algebra which satisfies given conditions is Morita equivalent to an algebra which is of finite representation type.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
