Lie Group Quantum Mathematics Seminar

 Quantum Symmetric Pairs: Structure and Applications

Gail Letzter, Mathematics Research Group, National Security Agency

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Friday, 07 December 2018 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

  • Abstract There is renewed interest in the coideal subalgebras used to form quantum symmetric pairs because of recent discoveries that they play a fundamental role in the representation theory of quantized enveloping algebras. In this talk, we present highlights of this special family of quantum cordials. We start with their connection to reflection equations which parallels the relationship between quantized enveloping algebras and the Quantum Yang Baxter Equations and then illustrate how representations for these quantum cordials appear in a variety of contexts. Some observations will be related to research interests at Rutgers.
