Colloquium: W-Algebras and Hamiltonian Equations

Monday, April 21, 2014

3:00 PM-4:00 PM

Alberto De Sole, visiting associate professor of mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 

Abstract: W-algebras (classical and quantum, finite and affine) play an important role in various areas of mathematics and physics. After a brief introduction to the theory of W-algebras, we will consider the structure of classical W-algebras, and their application to the theory of integrable bi-Hamiltonian systems.
