Lie Groups Quantum Mathematics Seminar

A Lie group analog for the Monster Lie algebra

Elizabeth Jurisich, College of Charleston

Location:  Hill 423
Date & time: Friday, 02 November 2018 at 2:00PM - 3:00PM

  • Abstract:  The Monster Lie algebra m, which admits an action of the Monster finite simple group M, was constructed by Borcherds as part of his program to solve the Conway-Norton conjecture about the representation theory of M. We associate the analog of a Lie group G(m) to the Monster Lie algebra m by giving generators and relations. Our group G(m) contains large free subgroups and G(m) acts on a natural extension of m as derivations.
  • This is joint work with Lisa Carbone and Ugo Moschella.
