Geometry and analysis of quantum groups
Winter school at University of Oslo
The theory of quantum groups is a fruitful melting pot of ideas from different fields of mathematics and mathematical physics, ranging from Poisson geometry, operator algebras, tensor categories, integrable systems, and beyond. More than 30 years after its invention by Drinfeld, Jimbo, Woronowicz, and others, the interplay between these different viewpoints still provides connections leading to surprising new insights and results.
To help early stage researchers familiarize with the basics and recent developments of the theory, and also to cultivate new communication among experts working on different aspects of quantum groups, we organize a winter school at University of Oslo with distinguished international lecturers.
