Geometric and Homological Methods in the Representation Theory of Associative Algebras and their Applications


Medellin, Colombia


18/06/2018 to 27/06/2018


The topics of this school will be on geometric and homological methods in the representation theory of associative algebras, and their applications. This school will offer five short courses with an intensity of twelve hours each (six hours theoretical and six exercise hours). The lectures will run over the three following main topics:

  • Geometric aspects of the representation theory ofalgebras.
  • Homological aspects of the representation theory of algebras.
  • Applications of the representation theory of posets and algebras.
