Overview

This summer school is designed to introduce graduate students and other young researchers to modern topics in Lie Theory, and allow them to meet and interact with other young researchers as well as more senior researchers. It aims to expose participants to open problems, tools, and techniques used in current research. The school will focus on Geometric, Combinatorial and Categorical Methods in Lie Theory. 

There will be four main speakers giving three lectures each. The program will consist of two morning talks by main speakers, followed by afternoon working sessions (AIM-style) on the topics of the morning lectures.

The Southeast Lie Theory Conference XI is planned immediately following the summer school, tentatively June 10–12, 2018 (Sun–Tue).

Speakers

  • Pramod Achar, Louisiana State University
  • Allen Knutson, Cornell University
  • Ivan Losev, Northeastern University
  • Julianna Tymoczko, Smith College

Support

The summer school is supported primarily by the University of Georgia Algebraic Geometry, Algebra and Number Theory (AGANT) Research and Training Group (RTG) grant from the National Science Foundation (DMS-1344994). Graduate students and other young researchers who wish to attend the school should apply for support.
