Getting Started in Undergraduate Research and Finding a Mentor Workshop

Workshop | August 22 | 9:30-10:30 a.m. | 106 Stanley Hall

 Leah Carroll, Haas Scholars Program Manager/Advisor, Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarships

 Office of Undergraduate Research

Getting Started in Undergraduate Research

If you are thinking about getting involved in undergraduate research, this workshop is a great place to start! You will get a broad overview of the research opportunities available to undergraduates on campus, and suggestions on how to find them.

We will also let you know about upcoming deadlines and eligibility requirements for some of...   More >

Berkeley-Tokyo Summer School "Geometry, Representation Theory, and Mathematical Physics": Affine branching laws and tensor categories II

Seminar | August 22 | 10-11:30 a.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Viktor Ostrik, University of Oregon

 Department of Mathematics

In these talks we will describe an approach to branching laws for highest weight integrable representations of affine Lie algebras based on fusion product and modular tensor categories. Our main emphasis will be on branching laws related with level rank duality

Berkeley-Tokyo Summer School "Geometry, Representation Theory, and Mathematical Physics": Dimer models and homological mirror symmetry I

Seminar | August 22 | 1:15-2:45 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

 Kazushi Ueda, University of Tokyo

 Department of Mathematics

A dimer model is a bicolored graph on a real 2-torus encoding the information of a quiver with potential. It originates from statistical mechanics, and is related to various branches of mathematics. In the talk, we will give an introduction to the theory of dimer models and its application to homological mirror symmetry.
