An Easy Introduction to Jordan Algebras
Songhao Zhu - Rutgers University
Location: Hill 701 (GSL)
Date & time: Wednesday, 13 March 2019 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM
Abstract: Jordan algebras interest people in various ways. I will give the definition, some examples and the classification of the formally real Jordan algebras. After a brief review of Lie algebras, I will discuss the connection between Lie algebras and Jordan algebras using Tits' construction with computations in specific cases.
