Categorical Methods in Representation Theory

26 Feb 2016, by chrystalcherniwchan in Events

Organisers: John MacQuarrie & Jeremy Rickard

A five day conference/workshop focusing on categorical approaches to various aspects of representation theory. The week will consist of three short lecture courses and roughly 10 one-off lectures given by experts in the field, as well as several contributed talks. The vague theme of the short courses is as follows:

Dave Benson (Aberdeen) – The Stable Category

Joe Chuang (City) – The Derived Category

Mike Prest (Manchester) – The Functor Category

The conference is financially supported by the Heilbronn Institute, and we thank them warmly. Thanks also to the LMS, who have provided financial assistance for postgraduates and young researchers.
