Seminar on Representation Theory (WiSe 2015/2016)
( = Seminar zur Darstellungstheorie )
Wednesday 10-12 h in V5-227 (2 SWS)
Organizer: Prof. Dr. Henning Krause,
Dr. Julia Sauter ,
Ögmundur Eiriksson
Content: Selected topics from representation theory of finite dimensional algebras
This is a seminar with varying topics, suggestions are always welcome. In particular, phd students are encouraged to formulate their
research needs and interests and we will try to incorporate this in the seminar. Usually we speak English and in exceptional cases German.
At the moment, we plan the following topics (with the person in charge of planning the talks):
- Submodule-closed categories and the Weyl group (Apolonia Gottwald)
21. Oktober 2015
- Homological study of Nakajima quiver varieties (Julia Sauter)
28. Oktober 2015
Review work of Keller-Scherotzke and Scherotzke, see here and here.
- Cohen-Macaulay Representations
November 2015
A series of talks with the aim to introduce connections of Cohen-Macaulay modules with matrix factorizations and classification of simple singularities.
A suggestion for schedule for the topic can be found here.
- Hopf algebras (Philipp Lampe)
December 2015
A series of talks introducing Hopf algebras with some examples and properties. The following talks are planned.
- Introduction to Hopf algebras
Define co/bi/Hopf algebras [GR 1.1-1.5, HGK 3.1-3.3] and introduce the notion of cocommutativity [GR 1.6, HGK 3.3] as well as primitive and group-like elements.
Give the examples of group algebras [GR 1.5, HGK 3.3.12, C 3.1], universal enveloping algebras [GR 1.38, HGK 3.2.15, C 3.6], tensor/shuffle algebras [GR 1.40, HGK 3.2.6], the Sweedler Hopf algebra [HGK 3.4.3] and the cohomology of an algebraic group [GR 1.20].
- Applications of Cartier-Gabriel's structure theorem for convolution algebras
Prove the structure theorem of Cartier-Gabriel for a cocommutative Hopf algebra over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero [C 3.8.2].
Introduce convolution algebras and explain Ringel's [R] and Schofield's [S] theorems relating convolution algebras with universal enveloping algebras.
- The Hopf algebra of symmetric functions
The aim of the talk is to introduce the Hopf algebra of symmetric polynomials and to explain why it is positive and self-dual with respect the basis of Schur functions.

The schedule will be updated when more talks have been organized.
