An MCSP Conversation Series Talk: "Combinatorial Representation Theory of Lie Algebras"

Please join us for a talk by Ms. Margaret Rahmoeller from N.C. State on the topic of Lie Algebras. Due to the technical nature of the second half of the talk, this may be most appropriate for MCSP majors. Abstract: We will discuss two combinatorial tools used in Representation Theory of Lie algebras: Young Diagrams and Path Realizations. For simplicity, we will focus on the simplest case of the Lie algebra sl(2) consisting of 2x2 trace-zero matrices over the field of complex numbers and its infinite dimensional analog sl(2)^ which is called an affine Lie algebra. Towards the end, we will discuss how to use the path realization to learn the structure of associated Demazure modules of the quantum affine algebra U_q(sl(n)^), which is the focus of my research.
