The Weizmann Institute of Science Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory Seminar Seminar Room, Room 261, Ziskind Building on Tuesday, January 3, 2012 12:00 - 13:30 Note the unusual day Jiuzu Hong TAU will speak on Polynomial functors and categorifications Abstract: I will explain how to categorify various Fock space representation structures on the algebra of symmetric functions via the category of strict polynomial functors. We enrich Schur-Weyl duality functor to a morphism of Kac-Moody and Heisenberg categorifications. This is a joint work with O.Yacobi. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: Yaeli Malka <yaeli.malka@weizmann.ac.il>
