LMS-CMI Research School

University of Leicester
19-23 June 2017

Organisers:  Karin Baur (U Graz), Sibylle Schroll (Leicester) and Nick Woodhouse (CMI)

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) 


Research students who will not have completed their PhD’s by the start of the Research School and who would otherwise be unable to attend can apply for financial aid. Application forms for financial aid will be available after the main application deadline on 24 March 2017 but details on the information that will be gathered can be found here:  http://bit.ly/2lAYt6D
