Curso «Representaciones del grupo simétrico» en Valencia 19-21 octubre

Oct ’15Oct
1921

Eugenio GiannelliEstimados compañeros:

Los próximos días 19-21 de octubre, Eugenio Giannelli (T.U. Kaiserlslautern) impartirá un curso en la Universitat de València sobre Teoría de Representaciones del Grupo Simétrico. La duración aproximada del curso será de 4 horas y media.

Resumen:

The aim of this short course is to define and characterize the simple modules for
the symmetric groups in both the ordinary and the modular setting. This will be
done via the classical combinatorial approach, used by Gordon James. The main
reference for these lectures is the book “The Representation Theory of Symmetric
Groups” by Gordon James.

Los interesados en asistir al curso pueden ponerse en contacto con Joan Tent (joan.tent@uv.es) o Carolina Vallejo (carolina.vallejo@uv.es) para cualquier información al respecto.

Un saludo,

Joan Tent

with the dates February 1 – 12, 2016, at the Erwin Schrödinger
Institute, Vienna, Austria, organized by Miklos Abert, Goulnara
Arzhantseva, Damien Gaboriau, Thomas Schick and Andreas Thom.

The school is a part of the thematic program ‘Measured group theory’
held at ESI January 18 — March 18, 2016. See

program for the school is:

Week 1 (Feb 1 – 5):

  • Gabor Elek: Sofic groups
  • Yair Glasner: Spaces of subgroups and IRS
  • Andrei Jaikin-Zapirain: An algebraic proof of the strong Atiyah conjecture for free groups
  • Jesse Peterson: Character rigidity
  • Brandon Seward: Sofic and Rokhlin entropy

Week 2 (Feb 8 – 12):

  • Tsachik Gelander: Asymptotic invariants of lattices in Lie groups
  • Francois le Maitre: Full groups, topological rank and cost
  • Narutaka Ozawa: Noncommutative real algebraic geometry: Kazhdan’s property (T) and Connes’s embedding conjecture
  • Todor Tsankov: Automorphism groups and their actions
  • Robin Tucker-Drob: Borel and measured equivalence relations and trees

If you have any questions about the program, contact one of the
organizers.

Applications to the school should be sent to creinha@uni-math.gwdg.de.
If you are a young researcher, also ask a senior researcher (typically
your advisor) to send a short reference email to the same address. The
selected participants will be provided some financial support to cover
their local expenses. In exceptional cases, some financial support for
travel will also be provided.

The application email should contain the following information,
preferably following the format below:

  • Your name:
  •  Email:
  • Affiliation:
  • Research topic:
  • Your advisor’s name (if you are a student):
  • Weeks of the school you are applying to:
  • Do you need per diem and/or travel support:

Estimados compañeros,

os reenvío el siguiente mensaje,

Un saludo,

Conchita

Estimados colegas,

os escribo como responsables de Redes Temáticas de Matemáticas en España.

El motivo de este correo es informaros sobre el III Congreso de Jóvenes Investigadores de la RSME, que tendrá lugar en Murcia del 7 al 11 de septiembre de este año. Podéis ver en la página web http://www.um.es/jovenesrsme2015/index.php toda la información
básica (comité científico, organizador, plenarios, sesiones paralelas, etc).

El 30 de abril concluye el plazo para solicitar presentar una comunicación en alguna sesión especial. También existe una sesión de posters.

Del mismo modo, el 30 de abril concluye el plazo para solicitar organizar sesiones paralelas adicionales. Dichas sesiones adicionales, preferentemente, deberán ser de temática no contenida en alguna de las 12 sesiones especiales ya organizadas, y que pueden consultarse en la web anterior. Para cualquier duda o mayor información en este sentido, estoy a vuestra disposición.

Os agradecería que dieseis difusión a esta información en vuestra Red Temática, por si hay algún investigador joven interesado en participar. La experiencia en los dos congresos de Jóvenes Investigadores RSME anteriores fue fantástica, y nos gustaría animar a los jóvenes de las redes temáticas a que asistan a este evento.

Gracias de antemano por vuestra colaboración.

Saludos,

Pablo Mira (Presidente del Comité Científico).
