Representations, Determinants and Branching rules.

Mathematics Colloquium | Sagar Shrivastava | Nov 7th, 2023

  • This event has passed.


Branching rules/laws ( restriction of representations ) also known as symmetry breaking in physics has been an active area of research since the onset of the topic by Herman Weyl in 1950. In this talk, I would give a brief description of Highest weight theory and the determinantal form of the Weyl character formula. I would proceed to talk about branching from GL_n to GL_{n-1} and give an idea about the other classical groups.This is a joint work with Prof. C.S. Rajan.
