HIM Trimester Program on

On the Interaction of Representation Theory with Geometry and Combinatorics

January - April 2011

Organizers: Steffen König, Peter Littelmann, Jan Schröer, Catharina Stroppel


The trimester will provide a forum and meeting place for exchange of ideas and techniques, focussing on topics connecting representation theory with different areas of mathematics. Established experts and young researchers will meet to discuss new ideas and techniques, opening the possibility for unforeseen collaborations and surprising results in the long run.

Lecture series will be given by Olivier Schiffmann, Paris (January 31 - February 13), Alexander Kleshchev, Oregon (February 21 - March 15), and Shrawan Kumar, Chapel Hill (April 3 - 19). There will be a winter school "Topics in Representation Theory" from January 10 - 14, 2011, and a workshop from March 28 - April 1, 2011.
