Representation Theory and Triangulated Categories

There will be a conference titled “Triangulated categories and representation theory” at Bielefeld University, in honour of Henning Krause.

Throughout his career Henning has made fundamental contributions to the representation theory of algebras, broadly interpreted, and particularly its connections with adjacent fields such as algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, algebraic topology, and modular representation theory. One of the hallmarks of his work is the clarity that it has brought to various topics through a deep and systematic use of methods from triangulated categories, a rapidly growing subject to which he has made seminal contributions. Henning has from the very start built bridges to various research communities and has been a mentor to early career researchers in these fields, officially for some and unofficially for many more, including some of the organisers.

This conference seeks to celebrate Henning Krause’s various mathematical contributions by bringing together experts from the range of fields influenced by his work. The conference also marks the end of the generous support provided by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation as part of William Crawley-Boevey's Alexander von Humboldt Professorship.

Date: Monday 26 September to Friday 30 September 2022

Venue: Bielefeld University, Germany

Organising Committee: Dave Benson, Bill Crawley-Boevey, Eleonore Faber, Lutz Hille, Srikanth Iyengar, Janina Letz, Marc Stephan

Funding: The conference is supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in the framework of an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship endowed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
