DESCRIPTION:Title: Tropical Fock-Goncharov coordinates for SL_3-webs on surfaces\nby Dan
iel Douglas (Yale University) as part of PIMS Geometry / Algebra / Physics
(GAP) Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor a finite-type surface $\\mathfrak{S}$\,
we study a preferred basis for the commutative algebra $\\mathbb{C}[\\math
cal{R}_{\\mathrm{SL}_3}(\\mathfrak{S})]$ of regular functions on the $\\te
xt{SL}_3(\\mathbb C)$-character variety\, introduced by Sikora-Westbury. T
hese basis elements come from the trace functions associated to certain tr
i-valent graphs embedded in the surface $\\mathfrak{S}$. We show that this
basis can be naturally indexed by positive integer coordinates\, defined
by Knutson-Tao rhombus inequalities and modulo $3$ congruence conditions.
These coordinates are related\, by the geometric theory of Fock-Goncharov\
, to the tropical points at infinity of the dual version of the character
variety. This is joint work with Zhe Sun.\n

ion of two subvarieties in the affine Grassmannian is a degeneration of th
eir product\, defined using the Beilinson-Drinfeld Grassmannian. In this t
alk\, we present a conceptually elementary approach to computing this prod
uct in type A when the varieties are MV cycles. As an application\, we can
compute all cluster exchange relations in the coordinate ring of the uppe
r-triangular subgroup of $\\text{GL}_4$\, confirming that all the cluster
variables are contained in the basis of MV cycles.\n

algebra $\\mathfrak a$ over $\\mathbb C$\, the Yangian $\\mathbf{Y}(\\mat
hfrak a)$ is a certain unital associative $\\mathbb C$-algebra. In particu
lar\, Yangians form a family of so-called quantum groups. The main propert
y these algebras is the foundational fact that their representations produ
ce rational solutions to the quantum Yang-Baxter equation. The structure a
nd representation theory of Yangians has become a study in and of itself a
nd has expanded to the study of super Yangians based on Lie superalgebras\
; however\, the theory of super Yangians is comparatively less developed t
han its non-super counterpart. In this talk\, we will survey what recent a
dvancements have been made in the study of super Yangians and view what el
se remains to do.\n\nHybrid delivery (in person on University of Saskatche

\nby Matthew Rupert (Utah State) as part of PIMS Geometry / Algebra /

quantum groups are a family of quantum algebras closely related to the non
-restricted specialization of Drinfeld-Jimbo algebras at roots of unity. T
hese quantum groups have played a pivotal role in the study of the Kazhdan

. In this talk I will introduce unrolled quantum groups\, describe their r

DESCRIPTION:Title: Pushing around loop equations\nby Raphaël Belliard (University of Al

re held in THORV 124.\n\nAbstract\nThe term “loop equations” was coine
d by Migdal in the early 90's in the context of quark confinement to refer
to certain sets of equations describing the propagation of test particles
in quantum field theory.\n\nThey have since appeared many times at the bo
undary between mathematics and physics. From statistical spectroscopy to e
numerative geometry via integrable hierarchies\, they encode conformal fea
tures of various problems in an analytic way.\n\nThe prototypical situatio
n where loop equations are valuable is that of matrix integrals\, with app
lications ranging from all the aforementioned topics to number theory and
even artificial neural networks.\n\nA seemingly antipodal approach to matr
ix integrals is that of orthogonal polynomials\, unveiling a subtle relati
onship between loop equations and the geometry of meromorphic connections.
This bridge can be abstracted in terms of $W$-algebra constraints and we
shall cross it back and forth.\n\nHybrid delivery (in person on University

h a common intuition in topology: objects that are somehow similar should
become the same when stabilized. We recently constructed families exhibiti

DESCRIPTION:Title: $U_q(\\mathfrak{gl}(1 \\vert 1))$ and $U(1 \\vert 1)$ Chern--Simons theo
ry\nby Matthew Young (Utah State University) as part of PIMS Geometry
/ Algebra / Physics (GAP) Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nChern--Simons theory\, as
introduced by Witten\, is a three dimensional quantum gauge theory associ
ated to a compact simple Lie group and a level. The mathematical model of
this theory as a topological quantum field theory was introduced by Reshet
ikhin and Turaev and is at the core of modern quantum topology. The goal o
f this talk is to explain a non-semisimple modification of the constructio
n of Reshetikhin and Turaev which realizes Chern--Simons theory with gauge
supergroup $U(1 \\vert 1)$\, as studied in the physics literature by Roza
nsky--Saleur and Mikhaylov. In particular\, I'll motivate and explain vari
ous relative modular structures on the category of representations of the
quantum group of $\\mathfrak{gl}(1 \\vert 1)$ which should be seen as non-
semisimple analogues of modular tensor categories associated to the quantu
m representation theory of a simple Lie algebra at a root of unity. Based

held in THORV 124.\n\nAbstract\nYangians are certain remarkable Hopf algeb
ras\, associated to finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras\, introduced by
Drinfeld in the 1980's. Drinfeld proved\, in a non-constructive manner\,
that each Yangian comes equipped with a formal solution to the famous Yang
-Baxter equation\, known as Drinfeld's universal R-matrix.\n\nIn this talk
\, I will present a very concrete method to construct Drinfeld's universal
R-matrix using additive difference equations. I will explain how our meth
od generalizes to other situations where no analogue of Drinfeld's result
is known\, such as Yangians associated to affine Kac-Moody algebras. I wil
l highlight the significant differences between the finite and affine situ
ations\, and the new challenges present in the latter.\n\nThis talk is bas

on of integrality for semi-simple algebraic groups over the field of ratio
nal numbers was established by Chevalley in the 1950s as part of his work
on associating affine group schemes with groups over integers. For infinit
e-dimensional Kac-Moody groups\, it remains an open problem. To state this
problem more precisely\, let $\\mathfrak g$ be a symmetrizable Kac–Mood
y algebra over $\\mathbb Q$\, $V$ be an integrable highest weight $\\mathf
rak g$-module\, and $V_{\\mathbb Z}$ be a $\\mathbb Z$-form of $V$. Let $G
=G(\\mathbb{Q})$ be an associated minimal representation-theoretic Kac–M
oody group and let $G(\\mathbb{Z})$ be its integral subgroup. Suppose $\\G
amma(\\mathbb{Z})$ is the Chevalley subgroup of $G$\, that is\, the subgro
up that stabilizes the lattice $V_{\\mathbb Z}$ in $V$. The integrality fo
r $G$ is to determine if $G(\\mathbb{Z})=\\Gamma(\\mathbb{Z})$. We will di
scuss some progress on this problem\, which we made in a joint work with L
isa Carbone\, Dongwen Liu\, and Scott H. Murray. Our results have various
applications\, including the integrality of subgroups of the unipotent sub

asey Blacker (George Mason University) as part of PIMS Geometry / Algebra
/ Physics (GAP) Seminar\n\nLecture held in PHYSICS 128.\n\nAbstract\nA sym
plectic Hamiltonian manifold consists of a Lie group action on a symplecti
c manifold\, together with the additional structure of a moment map\, whic
h encodes the group action in terms of the assignment of Hamiltonian vecto
r fields. In special cases\, the moment map determines a smooth submanifol
d to which the Lie group action restricts and the resulting quotient inher
its the structure of symplectic manifold. In every case\, it is possible t
o construct a reduced Poisson algebra that plays the role of the space of
smooth functions on the reduced symplectic manifold.\n\nIn this talk\, we
will discuss an adaptation of these ideas to the multisymplectic setting.
Specifically\, we will exhibit a geometric reduction procedure for multisy
mplectic manifolds in the presence of a Hamiltonian action\, an algebraic
reduction procedure for the associated $L$-infinity algebras of classical
observables\, and a comparison of these two construction. This is joint wo

ing the theory of AV-modules over smooth irreducible affine varieties $X$.
When the variety $X$ is projective\, it is necessary to consider sheaves
of AV-modules. We describe associative algebras that control the category
of AV-modules\, and construct a functor from the category of strong repres
