## EVENT DETAILS AND ABSTRACT

**Geometry/Physics Seminar**
**Title:** Finite dimensional modules for super gl(m|n) via diagrams

**Speaker:** Professor Catharina Stroppel

**Speaker Info:** Bonn

**Brief Description:**

**Special Note**:

**Abstract:**

The aim of the talk is to give a description of the category of
finite
dimensional modules over the Lie superalgebra gl(m|n) in terms of
modules over some combinatorially defined algebra A. The proof uses a
categorification of certain gl(infty)-modules with their crystal
structure. I will briefly recall the notion of categorification,
crystals and describe the resulting algebra A. The main idea of the
proof will be sketched, since we expect to be applicable in many other
contexts.
