Lie Theory Workshop: Geometry and Lie Theory

  • Start Date: 05/16/2015
  • End Date: 05/17/2015

University of Alberta


The Lie Theory Workshop series of weekend conferences has been meeting several times a year since 1990.  Most years the NSF supports graduate students and postdoctoral participants, and the institution at which the workshop takes place also provides some support.  Most, but not all, of the workshops take place at West Coast universities.  Each workshop program is determined by the local organizers, and the workshop program itself is organized by a committee currently consisting of Geoff Mason (University of California, Santa Cruz)), Susan  Montgomery (University of Southern California) and Joseph Wolf (University of California at Berkeley).


The purpose of the program is to communicate results and ideas rather than to deliver polished presentations. The program also serves to acquaint graduate students in this area with a range of researchers in Lie theory and representation theory.
