Title: Finite dimensional modules for super gl(m|n) via diagrams
Speaker: Professor Catharina Stroppel
Speaker Info: Bonn
Brief Description:
Special Note:

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.
