Hopf Algebras and their Generalizations from a Categorical Point of View

May 6, 2017 - May 10, 2017
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada

Folklore says that Hopf algebras are distinguished algebras whose representation category admits a closed monoidal structure. In the mini course we will discuss generalizations of bialgebras and Hopf algebras based on this principle. Read the report

Atlantic General Relativity 2017

May 28, 2017 - June 2, 2017
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

The conference was in three parts all held at Memorial University in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. On Sunday May 28 before the main part of the workshop, post-doc members of the AARMS CRG gave set of introductory lectures aimed at beginning graduate students. From Monday May 29 to Wednesday May 31, there was a workshop hosted by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) collaborative research group (CRG) “Mathematical and physical aspects of black holes”. It featured four invited speakers who each…

AARMS Summer School 2017

July 3, 2017 - July 28, 2017
University of Prince Edward Island Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada + Google Map

During a four week period every summer AARMS invites highly regarded faculty from around the world to deliver graduate courses in the mathematical sciences and their applications. Our goals are to broaden the education of graduate students and to encourage promising undergraduates to continue their study. While, in a given year, a good number of students come from Canada, our School continues to bring to Atlantic Canada students from around the world. Indeed, the multicultural, international flavour of our School…

Tensor Categories and Topological Field Theory

March 5, 2018 - March 9, 2018
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

The Atlantic Algebra Centre in St.John's is hosting a mini course on tensor categories and topological field theory by Professor Christoph Schweigert from the University of Hamburg during the week from March 5 to March 9, 2018. The mini course will connect algebra, where tensor categories frequently arise as representation categories of Hopf algebras, to physics, where topological field theories arise in string theory via the so-called topological twist. Professor Schweigert, who is a physicist by education and also the…

AARMS Summer School 2018: Data Analytics

June 4, 2018 - June 29, 2018
University of Prince Edward Island Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada + Google Map

The summer school is intended for graduate students and promising undergraduate students from all parts of the world. Each participant is expected to register for at least two of the four courses. Each course consists of three hours lecture sessions per day for two weeks. These are graduate courses approved by University of Prince Edward Island and we will facilitate transfer credit to the extent possible.

AAC minicourse by Professor Matej Bresar

September 9, 2018 - September 15, 2018
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

During the week of September 9 to September 15, 2018, Atlantic Algebra Centre organizes a mini course “Functional Identities and Zero Product Determined Algebras" by Prof. Matej Bresar. Functional identities are an important combinatorial tool applicable to problems in noncommutative and nonassociative algebra, linear algebra, and operator theory. They have been used in an essential way for the solution of the well-known Herstein's Lie map conjectures, which remained open for three decades. Matej Brešar was one of the authors of…

Mini-course “Representations of simple finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras”

January 21, 2019 - January 25, 2019
Memorial University (St. John’s Campus) St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada + Google Map

This mini-course will focus on Representation Theory of simple complex finite dimensional and affine Lie algebras. We will start with the introduction to the theory of infinite dimensional weight representations. Though the classification of irreducible representations is still open beyond the sl(2) case in general, in some subcategories this problem can be managed successfully. In particular, we will discuss the theory of Gelfand-Tsetlin modules and their generalizations in the finite dimensional case. A comparison will be given with the representations…

AARMS Summer School 2019: Dynamical Systems, DEs, and Special Functions

June 17, 2019 - July 12, 2019
University of Prince Edward Island Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada

The summer school is intended for graduate students and promising undergraduate students from all parts of the world. Each participant is expected to register for at least two of the four courses. These courses are certified to be graduate level courses by both the School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences (SMCS) at University of Prince Edward Island and by the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS). Upon successful completion of a course, SMCS and AARMS will award…

Mini-course on GAP

January 13, 2020 - January 17, 2020
Dalhousie University Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada + Google Map

Leandro Vendramin of the University of Buenos Aires will give a special minicourse from January 13-17. The course will be on the computer algebra system GAP. It will take place in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Dalhousie, and will also be live-streamed. It will be suitable for undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and everyone interested in symbolic computation. The first lecture of the minicourse will also work as a colloquium. Please see below for the precise dates and…
