Subtitle:

Topics in Representation Theory

Course Description:

This will be a highly individualized course covering topics in representation theory with "low-hanging" fruit, i.e. areas in which a semester's work might conceivably lead to publishable results. I will help each student choose a topic appropriate to his/her background and taste, sketch the main results in the topic, discuss possible generalizations, and suggest lines of attack. Students can work on one or more topic, either individually or in teams. In particular, if you took this course last time, there will be no overlap! If you are interested in this course, please send me an e-mail.
