Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives13 Feb 2019, by Sponsored events in
6 January – 30 June 2020
Group Theory is essentially the theory of symmetry for mathematical and physical systems, and underpins much of modern mathematics. Born more than two centuries ago in the work of Evariste Galois, it achieved a major milestone when the Classification of Finite Simple Groups was completed. Since then, important and deep connections to areas as varied as topology, algebraic geometry, Lie theory, homological algebra, and mathematical physics, have been discovered and exploited. Still, the area abounds with basic problems and conjectures, some of which have been open for decades.
