Representation Theory Workshop (Münster & Sydney), September 2021

Representation theory’s hidden motives
27 September – 1 October 2021

Sydney Mathematical Research Institute/University of Münster

Watch the seminar recordings on the Representation Theory YouTube playlist.

In recent years, motivic techniques have been applied in several branches of representation theory, for example in geometric and modular representation theory. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in these areas in order to foster new synergies in topics such as foundational aspects of the theory of motives, Tate motives on varieties of representation-theoretic origin, motivic aspects of the Langlands program, and motives of classifying spaces.

The workshop is organised by Nora Ganter (University of Melbourne), Jakob Scholbach (University of Münster), Matthias Wendt (University of Wuppertal) and Geordie Williamson (SMRI).
