  • Start Date: 07/27/2012
  • End Date: 08/05/2012

Summer School Lecturers:

Balmer, Paul - University of California, Los Angeles
Benson, David - University of Aberdeen
Iyengar, Srikanth - University of Nebraska - Lincoln


Confirmed and tentatively agreed Workshop Speakers:



University of Washington


Cohomology and support in representations theory,


Commutative algebra,


Triangulated categories and related topics.


Summer School July 27th - 30th:

The summer school will provide an opportunity for graduate students
and recent PhDs to learn about several areas of active research lying at
the intersection of representation theory, commutative algebra and
algebraic topology.

There will be three series of lectures on the following topics:

Modules of constant Jordan type and vector bundles
Triangular geometry
Derived categories and differential graded algebras.

The lectures will be supplemented by problem solving sessions.



Workshop August 1st - 5th:

The succeeding workshop will bring mathematicians from different
areas together to foster interactions and to find new connections
between multiple fields united by their use of the concept of “support”
and will introduce a new generation of researchers to a huge scope of
recent results, future directions, and abundant open problems in the
