Title: Recent advances in modular representation theory of the symmetric groups
Date: Tue, Jun 28, 2011, 13:15 - 14:45
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: Recently, it became known that representation theory of Hecke algebras and Lie theory are intimately related via categorification. A typical example is the case when we take the symmetric group algebra as our Hecke algebra.
I will give a survey of this connection in this case developed by Ariki, Brundan, Kleshchev, Grojnowski, Rouquier and many others.
