Studies the basic structure theory of associative or nonassociative algebras.
Radmila Sazdanovic (NC State) - Relations between chromatic and Khovanov homology
We analyze the algebraic structure of Khovanov homology and related chromatic homology
theories, with a focus on understanding torsion. Although computations hint at the abundance of torsion, describing and understanding it is no easy task. We will discuss current results on 2-torsion, which we obtain using relations to chromatic graph homology theories and spectral sequence arguments. We also state non-existence results for odd torsion in certain gradings of Khovanov homology of semi-adequate knots and links.
Adam Chapman (Michigan State) - Kummer Spaces in Central Simple Algebras
Kummer spaces have been recently used in bounding the symbol length of central simple algebras. Their maximal dimension appears in the formula. We discuss how to find the maximal dimension is several different cases.Add to Google Calendar
