Progrram on Group Algebra and ComputationInternational Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS-TIFR), Bangalore is organizing a Program on Group Algebras, Representations & Computation during October 14-23.

About the Program:

The importance of computational methods in all pursuits of pure mathematics is no more obscure, and the subject has established itself as a powerful tool, aiding quick maturing of intuition about concrete mathematical structures.

The focus of this program is on theoretical aspects of group algebras and representation theory of finite and profinite groups complemented by computational techniques using discrete algebra system GAP.


Ramanujan Lecture Hall, ICTS Bangalore.

Program Structure:

The first part of this program is planned to touch upon various aspects of group algebras and representation theory, including Wedderburn decomposition as well as idempotents of group algebra and their applications, representations of finite simple groups of Lie type and p-adic analytic groups, representation growth and computational methods.

It will consist of three mini-courses:

  • Representations of finite and profinite groups.
  • Structure of group algebras.
  • Computations with finite groups

The plan is to have five hours of teaching and five hours tutorials and guided practical sessions in each mini-course.

The second part of the program, a 4-day discussion meeting during October 20-23, 2019, is aimed at exploring some of the recent developments and problems of current mathematical interest in the above mentioned and related areas.

  • The program is mainly aimed at Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, and young faculty members.
  • However, a couple of highly motivated final year master students shall also be given a chance to participate in the first part of the program.
