Lie Group Quantum Mathematics Seminar

Groups for Borcherds algebras

Lisa Carbone, Rutgers University

Location:  HILL 705
Date & time: Friday, 13 October 2017 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

    • Abstract:   Borcherds algebras are generalizations of Kac-Moody algebras and have wide applications in physical theories and the study of automorphic forms. We discuss the problem of associating the analog of a Lie a group to a Borcherds algebra and we present some examples, including the Monster Lie algebra.
