Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar

Quantum Schur-Weyl duality and link invariants

Johannes Flake, Rutgers University

Location:  Hill 525
Date & time: Monday, 27 November 2017 at 1:00PM - 2:00PM

Abstract: We will describe two classes of algebras, quantum groups and Hecke algebras, and we will see that they are related through a quantum version of Schur-Weyl duality. We will use both classes of algebras to generate link invariants, such as the Jones polynomial and the HOMFLYPT polynomial.
