LMS-CMI Research School: New Trends in Representation Theory - The Impact of Cluster Theory in Representation Theory

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 9:00am to Friday, June 23, 2017 - 3:30pm

The focus is on recent advances that have emerged in representation theory through cluster theory: n-representation theory, integrable systems and friezes, and silting and infinite dimensional representations. These areas of mathematics are enriched by their interactions with other areas of mathematics such as category theory, dynamical systems and mathematical physics.

Lecture courses:

  • n-representation theory - Peter Jorgensen (Newcastle) 
  • Integrable systems and friezes - Sophie Morier-Genoud (Paris) 
  • Infinite dimensional representations - Lidia Angeleri-Hügel (Verona)

These lecture courses will be supplemented by tutorial sessions.

Guest lectures: 

Martin Herschend (Uppsala), Pierre-Guy Plamondon (Orsay) and Mike Prest (Manchester)
