Visitors
to IPM
Farzad Fathizadeh from York
University, Canada (July 1131, 2011) and Kursat Aker
from Feza Gursey Institute, Turkey (July 1531, 2011)
will be guests at IPM. They are invited by the NCG
program here to give a series of lectures on NCG at IPM.
Lie Algebra
Represenations by Examples
Kursat Aker
Feza Gursey Institute, Turkey
Abstract:
In these lectures, we will introduce basics of
Lie algebra representations
in small rank examples, sl(2) and sl(3),
type A1 and A2 respectively.
Lectures will cover such basics as highest weight
theory, various
dimension formulas, and character
formulas.
If time permits, we will also discuss other small rank
examples of
type B2 and G2 as well as a more
combinatorial approach
to characters using the LenartPostnikov
alcove model.
Date: Saturday July 23, 2011
and Sunday July 24, 2011
Time: 14:00  15:00

Algebras
Mahdi Rostami

Introduction to Cyclic Cohomology 1
Masoud Khalkhali
University of Western Ontario, Canada
Abstract:
Cyclic cohomology is the noncommutative analogue of
de Rham homology and as such plays a fundamental role in
noncommutative geometry and its applications. In these
series of lectures I shall give a rather detailed
exposition of cyclic cohomology with a view towards main
examples, calculations, and applications. The lectures
will be self contained and no prior knowledge of cyclic
cohomology or noncommutative geometry will be assumed.
Time: Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 16:00
