Mathematics Colloquium

Volodymyr Mazorchuk (Univ. Uppsala, Sweden)
Title: (Higher) representation theory

Wednesday, 22 June, 2016

Abstract: In this talk I want to present my point of view on what (higher) 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 problems in higher representation theory.
