Abstracts

Speaker: Ben Salisbury (Central Michigan University)
Title: Rigged Configurations and the Infinity Crystal
Abstract: The infinity crystal models the structure of (one half of) the quantum group (or, quantized universal enveloping algebra) and is built using a complicated algebraic procedure. However, crystals highlight the important combinatorial characteristics of the algebra, and therefore can be modeled using various combinatorial objects. In this talk, the rigged configuration model will be described and some of its important properties will be discussed.

Speaker: Olivia Dumitrescu (Central Michigan University)
Title: TBD
Abstract: Coming soon.
