Here is a reincarnation of the MIT-NEU grad student Representation theory seminar!
Running weekly on Tuesdays (note the change of time!) alternating between MIT and Northeastern:
MIT, 56-154 (5-8pm w. pizza break): Sept 9,23, Oct 7,21, Nov 4,25, Dec 9.
NEU, Ryder 394 (note that the room has changed!) (6-8pm): Sept 16,30, Oct 14,28, Nov 18, Dec 2.
Organized by Pavel Etingof (a.k.a. the Boss=Officer Krupke from the "West Side Story") and Ivan Losev.
In the Fall semester we plan to discuss the following topics:
1) Hecke algebras and finite groups of Lie type.
2) Affine Hecke algebras and p-adic groups.
3) Categorical representations of type A Kac-Moody algebras.
