Representations on a Quiver
Presented by Professor Shannon Talbott, University of Iowa
Lunch will be provided.
Audience: students and faculty
Representation theory allows mathematicians to take abstract algebraic structures and describe them in terms of something which is well known to mathematicians - linear algebra. Representation theory is not only a powerful tool, but also it can be found throughout mathematics in a variety of areas such as algebra, analysis and number theory. Quivers are directed graphs with vertices and arrows. In this talk, we will discuss explicitly how to put a representation on a quiver.
