CalTitle1: Turner doubles and RoCK blocks of symmetric groups

Auth: kevinc@pkevinc.pc (assumed)

Anton Evseev (Universty of Birmingham) Friday 4 March, 12-1pm, Place: Carslaw 375 Turner doubles and RoCK blocks of symmetric groups. The so-called RoCK blocks play an important role in representation theory of symmetric groups and Hecke algebras at roots of unity. RoCK blocks have a much simpler structure than general blocks of Hecke algebras. W. Turner conjectured that every RoCK block of weight d is Morita equivalent to a `doubleâ€™ algebra, which is a `localâ€™ Schur-algebra-like object related to the wreath product of a Brauer tree algebra with the symmetric group Sd. The talk will outline a proof of this conjecture, which uses Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras in an essential way. The result implies that every block of a Hecke algebra of the symmetric group is derived equivalent to the appropriate Turner double. During the talk, I will aim to give an overview of the construction of KLR algebras and that of Turner doubles. The talk is based on joint work with Alexander Kleshchev.
