Cahit Arf Lecture 2019-Geordie Williamson (The University of Sydney)
Arf Lecture 2019 will be given by Geordie Williamson from The University of Sydney on September 26 at 15:40 in Cahit Arf Auditorium.
Title: Representation theory and geometry
Abstract: One of the most fundamental questions in representation theory asks for a description of the simple representations. I will give an introduction to this problem with an emphasis on the representation theory of Lie groups and algebras. A recurring theme throughout the history of the subject is the appearance of geometric techniques in seemingly algebraic problems.
