‘Representation theory of exceptional Lie superalgebras’

Shun-Jen Cheng (Institute of Mathematics, Academia Sinica and National Taiwan University)

Thursday 6th May 3:30pm - 5:00pm (AEST)

(Other time zones: Thur 6:30am BST / Thur 7:30am CEST / Wed 10:30pm PDT / Thur 1:30am EDT / Thur 1:30pm CST (China))

Online via Zoom

In the first half of the talk we shall introduce the notion of Lie superalgebras, and then give a quick outline of the classification of finite-dimensional complex simple Lie superalgebras. In the second part of the talk we shall discuss the representation theory of these Lie superalgebras and explain the irreducible character problem in the BGG category. Our main focus will be on our computation of the irreducible characters for two of the exceptional Lie superalgebras. This part is based on recent joint works with C.-W. Chen, L. Li, and W. Wang.

Note: This seminar will be recorded (participants only when asking questions) and uploaded to the SMRI YouTube Channel
