Graduate Algebra and Representation Theory Seminar
An introduction to Lie and representation theory in physics
PARKER HUND, Rutgers
Date & time: Thursday, 06 December 2018 at 10:00AM - 11:00AM
Abstract: Since I am not quite ready to talk about stars, instead I will talk about some things in a very different direction. I will talk about the relations among and representations of the groups and corresponding algebras of U(1), U(2), SU(2), and SO(3). I will also talk about the Schrodinger representation of the Heisenberg group and algebra. All of the physics necessary to understand the applications will be explained in the talk.
