Mathematics

Groups with involutions: their place in geometry and representation theory 
 
Fri, Feb 09, 2018,   04:30 PM to 05:30 PM at Madhava Hall

Prof. Dipendra Prasad
TIFR Mumbai

"Algebras with involutions'', a topic of much classical interest, crystallized 

in Andre Weil's 1960 paper, and on which there is by now already a classic book by 
Knus-Merkurjev-Rost-Tignol, continues to be of basic importance in mathematics. 

In this talk, we will discuss ``Groups with involutions'', a topic which arises in the work of 
Elie Cartan on symmetric spaces, and one which is of fundamental importance for 
representation theory.
