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): Higher preprojective algebras

Pierre-Guy Plamondon (Orsay): Group actions on quivers from triangulated surfaces with punctures

Mike Prest (Manchester): Definable categories
