Computational Algebra Seminar: de Graaf -- Computing with algebraic groups

Speaker: Willem de Graaf (Trento)
Title: Computing with algebraic groups
Time & Place: 3:05-4pm, Thursday 3 May, Carslaw 535

Connected linear algebraic groups in characteristic zero are
completely determined by their Lie algebras. In this talk I will
discuss algorithms to make this correspondence effective.
In particular I will talk about how to decide whether a given
linear Lie algebra corresponds to an algebraic group,
and on how to find the group if it does.
