Math Department Colloquium

Levan Center, 201 2322 N Kenmore Ave

Ryan Kinser (University of Iowa)

Title: Matrix problems and quiver representations

Abstract: I will tell the story of how directed graphs (quivers) provide a unified approach to ideas from classical linear algebra to modern representation theory.  The talk is completely expository, progressing from a brief recollection of Jordan normal form to simplified statements of some of the major theorems about finite-dimensional algebras from the 1970s.  The target audience includes everyone from graduate students to senior mathematicians.
