Representation stability June 24, 2019 - July 05, 2019
Parent Program: --
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium, Atrium
Organizers Thomas Church (Stanford University), LEAD Andrew Snowden (University of Michigan), Jenny Wilson (Stanford University)

Suggested prerequisites:
Students should have at a minimum familiarity with one of the following broad topics, and ideally at least 2. (But more than that is not necessary, and we certainly do not expect any student to be familiar with all of them!)

  • Representations of fi nite groups over C and the classifi cation of Sn-irreps 2
  • Commutative algebra (Noetherian rings, tensor product, free resolutions)
  • Gröbner bases
  • Representation theory of GLnC
  • Homological algebra (Tor, Ext, derived functors)
  • Topology (homology and cohomology of spaces and/or groups)
  • Symmetric functions
