"Subalgebras of so(7) Induced by the Coassociative 4-Form on R^7"

Consider the 2-forms on R^7 resulting from evaluating the coassociative 4-form on two vectors. It turns out that, when such vectors are restricted to an associative 3-plane P, these 2-forms along with those in Λ^2(P) give a subalgebra of so(7) isomorphic to so(3) ♁ so(3). After giving some brief context, we will discuss this fact and characterize the intersections of such subalgebras for different choices of P.

"Representation of General Linear Group over Finite Field"

This talk aims at discussing the techniques used in finding all the irreducible representations of general linear groups over finite fields. A brief overview of representation theory is also provided, but no such overview is provided for group theory and field theory.

"Divisors and line bundles, Part II"

This week, we finish the discussion we started last week on the relationship between divisors and line bundles on complex varieties. We also describe the divisor class groups and the Picard groups of toric varieties.

The seminar will meet on Zoom:
