Categorical Algebra, summer semester 2022
This is the website (under construction) for the Seminar
on Categorical Algebra: Braids, bimodules, and bicategories.
We will develop the categorical algebra which underpins quantum invariants of
knots, links and tangles, such as the Jones polynomial, as well as categorified
quantum invariants, such as Khovanov homology.
This seminar is mainly aimed at Masters and advanced Bachelor students in
Mathematics and Mathematical Physics.
Prerequisites: basic notions from algebra and category theory.
There will be a preparatory meeting on 15th March 2022, 10:15am via BBB.
The seminar will be held in person:
- Monday, 16:15-17:45, Room 435, Geomatikum, 4th Apr 22 - 11th Jul 22
The seminar outline will be continually expanded and updated throughout the semester.
