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

Date/Time/Room: Friday (11/16/2012) at 4:30 pm in 311 Pickard Hall

Speaker: Assistant Prof. Natalia Rozhkovskaya,
Department of Mathematics, Kansas State University.


"Commutative Subalgebras coming from Duality of Actions"

Abstract: The classical Schur-Weyl duality establishes relations between representations of the general linear group and of the symmetric group. There are several analogues of this important theorem that describe duality between actions of algebraic structures, for example between the actions of classical Lie algebras and of the Brauer algebra. This connection gives insight into the structure of the involved algebras and allows one to construct remarkable commutative families. The topic of the talk is the description of subalgebras generated by such families.


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 311 is on the 3rd floor of PKH; turn LEFT out of elevator on 3rd floor to end of hall, left again towards the end of that hall, and 311 will be on your right-hand side.

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.
