(Higher) representation theory
  SMC Colloquium

Wednesday 09 March 2016
from 15:15 to 16:15
at Oskar Klein, AlbaNova
Speaker : Volodymyr Mazorchuk, Uppsala University
Abstract : In this talk I want to present my point of view on what representation theory is and why it is useful. I would like to show, using a baby example, how classical representation theory transforms into higher representation theory, in particular, explaining what the latter one is. At the end, I plan to make a brief overview of some recent results and open probelms in higher representation theory.
