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

The former gives buildings and the latter gives parking lots; both
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.
