Description

Geometric Representation Theory is a very active field, at the center of recent advances in Number Theory and Theoretical Physics. The principal goal of the Introductory Workshop will be to provide a gateway for graduate students and new post-docs to the rich and exciting, but potentially daunting, world of geometric representation theory. The aim is to explore some of the fundamental tools and ideas needed to work in the subject, helping build a cohort of young researchers versed in the geometric and physical sides of the Langlands philosophy.
