The ‘supers’ of Algebra, and how they save Quantum Physics

Pure Mathematics Postgraduate Seminar

8th December 2017, 4:30 pm – 5:40 pm
Howard House, 4th Floor Seminar Room

What would you expect when you put extra restrictions on groups? Their representations to be similarly restricted? Wrong! Turns out constraints are actually *lifted* from the representations!
Oh and not only that, but they gain secret identities as the methods used to classify quantum systems that are too complicated to study straight, allowing some information on them to be ascertained.
This will be a jaunt through pure Representation Theory and Algebra and into applications in Quantum Physics with Random Matrix Theory, and symmetry classifications.
