Kazhdan-Lusztig theory and Soergel bimodules
Month: August 2014
Date: August 4--8
Name: Kazhdan-Lusztig theory and Soergel bimodules
Location: University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon.
The goal of this workshop will be to first get a solid handle on Soergel bimodules and the philosophy of algebraic categorification, and then understand the recent proof of the Soergel conjecture in the paper "The Hodge theory of Soergel bimodules", by Ben Elias and Geordie Williamson. The workshop will be led by Ben Elias, and will consist of a combination of lectures and problem sessions.
