Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar

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.
