Affine Quantum Groups Reading Seminar

Fall 2018

Time & Location: Wednesdays at 4pm, CAB 563


This is a student seminar which has the format of an informal reading course. Our goal for this semester is to give a detailed exposition to the theory of Yangians. However, we also welcome any talks related to the representation theory of quantum groups. Here is a list of past and upcoming talks (to be updated sporadically).

(09/26) M. Rupert Lie bialgebras I: Definitions and Examples
(10/03) M. Rupert Lie bialgebras II: Manin triples and the Lie bialgebra double
(10/10) C. Wendlandt Lie bialgebras III: The graded double of the Yangian Lie bialgebra
(10/17) C. Wendlandt Lie bialgebras IV: Pseudo-quasitriangularity of the current algebra
(10/24) C. Wendlandt Lie bialgebras V: Rationality properties of the current algebra
(10/31) No Seminar
(11/07) C. Wendlandt Yangians I: Quantization and definition
(11/14) C. Wendlandt Yangians II: Hopf structure and \( \mathbb{C}\)-form
(11/21) C. Wendlandt Yangians III: PBW theorem and the Rees algebra
(11/28) C. M. Rupert Yangians IV: Finite-dimensional representations

[Notes]


The seminar is organized by Matt Rupert and myself. If you are interested in giving a talk or would like to be added to our mailing list, please email me at cwendlan(at)ualberta(dot)ca.
