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.
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.
Workshop on the Hanna Neumann Conjecture and Related Topics
The Workshop on the Hanna Neumann Conjecture and Related Topics will be held in Bilbao from the 29th of June to the 10th of July 2015. There will be 3 courses of about 10 hours each given by Yago Antolin-Pichel, Joel Friedman and Andrei Jaikin and covering different proofs of the Hanna Neumann Conjecture and generalisations. There will also be contributed talks by other participants.
The organising committee is pleased to announce that registration for the workshop is now open and that there is some funding available for graduate students and early career researchers. Please follow the link http://www.ehu.eus/es/web/greca/how-to-register for more details and information on how to register.
We ask for your help in advertising this event and distributing this announcement through mailing lists and social networks.
We hope to see you in Bilbao!
