Categorifications in Representation Theory
Tuesday 15th to Thursday 17th September 2020, Online
Organisers: Aran Tattar, Nicholas Williams
Categorifications are category-theoretic analogues of mathematical phenomena. This process can engender mathematical progress by allowing problems to be attacked with new techniques and theory that exist in a categorical setting. Categorification does not in general have a strict definition, and can refer to approaches in a range of different areas. This conference aims to bring together postgraduate and early career researchers interested in a wide variety of categorifications.
