What's on at SMSAS - School events calendar

May 12
16:00 - 17:00
SMSAS Postgraduate seminar: Christos Sarakasidis

Regular seminars are held by the School's postgraduate research students and post-docs. These generally take the form of a presentation for approximately 30 minutes followed by informal discussion. Funding for external speakers may be available. Please contact the organisers for details.

Abstract for the talk: "Homological aspects of Lie algebras and related topics"

Lie Algebras is a useful tool which dominates every aspect of the interaction between physics and mathematics. Moreover, the applications within mathematics are uncountable and some of them will be discussed throughout this talk. Gravity will be given especially to the algebraic setup of these algebras and some results from algebraic topology such as Lie's III Theorem which establishes a very good relation between Lie Algebras and the geometry of Lie groups. Categorical aspects such as the category of modules over the universal algebra U(g) of a lie algebra g will be discussed too.
