Abstract: Representations of $$sl_2(\mathbb{C})$$ are fundamental in the study of Topological Quantum field Theory. We'll introduce Lie algebras and their representations with a focus on the Lie algebra $$sl_2(\mathbb{C})$$. This is the first talk in a working seminar on TQFTs, following the course notes by Ko Honda available at http://www-bcf.usc.edu/~khonda/math635/notes.pdf
