Metroplex Algebraic Geometry, Algebra and Number Theory (AGANT) Seminar,
a joint venture of   UNT,   UTA   and   TCU

Date/Time/Room: Friday (4/13/2012) at 4:30 pm in 304 Pickard Hall

Speaker: Prof. Maria Gorelik,
Department of Mathematics, The Weizmann Institute of Science (and MIT).


"Queer Lie Superalgebras"

Abstract:In this talk, we will discuss queer Lie superalgebras. These Lie superalgebras are rather special: they possess an odd invariant bilinear form and do not have a quadratic Casimir element. Nevertheless, they are ``close relatives'' of the simple Lie algebra sl(n).


A map of UTA may be found at http://www.uta.edu/maps/, and at http://www.uta.edu/maps/transportation. The former gives buildings and the latter gives parking lots; both are interactive.
Note that PKH is the triangular building in the 3 pm position in the former. Select Pickard Hall from the building selector. PKH is next to the ``garage'' & is on Nedderman Dr between Planatarium Place (aka College St) & West St. West St is one-way northbound between W Mitchell St and 3rd St. Parking is available in the nearby (East and SE of PKH) parking lots with a UTA permit (but many people park there late on Fridays with no permit). There are a few metered parking spots on the East side of Pickard Hall on West St. Visitor (free), & metered, parking is available by Davis Hall (marked DH in SW part of the submap). A parking garage (expensive) is nextdoor to PKH (use West St to get to it). Note that if heading south on Cooper, then no left turn is allowed to Nedderman Dr.
Note that PKH 304 is on the 3rd floor of PKH; turn right out of elevator on 3rd floor.

Questions, etc on arrangements/directions should be sent to Dr Vancliff; if travelling from out of town, notify Dr Vancliff, as we will delay starting the talk for you if you are late.
