Sagar Shrivastava (TIFR, India) - Thursday, Thursday Nov 9, 2023 - 4:00 PM (IST)

 Dear all,

The talk in the coming week is by Sagar Shrivastava, School of Mathematics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR).

Talk Announcement: 
Title:   Representations, Determinants and Branching rules
Speaker: Sagar Shrivastava (TIFR, India)
When: Thursday, Thursday Nov 9, 2023 - 4:00 PM (IST) 

Where: Zoom: Please write to the organisers for the link

Branching rules/laws (restriction of representations) also known as symmetry breaking in physics has been an active area of research since the onset of the topic by Herman Weyl in 1950. In this talk, I would give a brief description of Highest weight theory and the determinantal form of the Weyl character formula. I would proceed to talk about branching from $GL_n$ to $GL_{n-1}$ and give an idea about the other classical groups.
