CalTitle1: Warnaar -- The Selberg integral and representation theory

Auth: thiel@p526m.pc (assumed)

Speaker: Ole Warnaar (University of Queensland) Date: Friday 2 November Time: 12-13 Venue: Carslaw 375 Title: The Selberg integral and representation theory Abstract: Atle Selberg’s famous multiple integral has applications in many areas of mathematics and physics, including random matrix theory, number theory, geometry and integrable systems. In this talk I will discuss some old and new occurrences of the Selberg integral in group theory and representation theory, including the theory of finite reflection groups, KZ equations, and the AGT conjecture in conformal field theory.
