August 1 – 31, 2019 » Quiver Varieties and Representation Theory

Organizers: Joel Kamnitzer (Toronto), Hugh Thomas (UQAM)

The representation theory of quivers (and related preprojective algebras) has been studied by researchers from algebra, while the geometry of quiver varieties has been studied by researchers in geometric representation theory.  This activity will bring together members of these two communities to exchange recent progress and to stimulate further research and collaboration.  Among other topics, we will discuss quantization of quiver varieties, Coulomb branch constructions using quiver varieties, tilting theory for preprojective algebras, and categorification of cluster algebras.
