An Introduction to Representations of sl2(C)

sl2(CC)

Friday, September 16, 2011, 4:00pm
Ungar Building Room 402

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
