An online session of the Algebra and Logic Seminar will be held on March 26, 2021 (Friday) at 1:00 p.m.
A talk on

Universal tensor categories and “algebraic functional analysis”

will be delivered by Ivan Penkov (Jacobs University Bremen, Germany).

Abstract. In this talk I will outline the construction of some tensor categories generated by two objects X, Y with a pairing X\otimes Y → 1 to the monoidal unit 1. These categories are categories of representations of certain infinite-dimensional Lie algebras, and they turn out to be universal in a sense which will be explained in the talk. The interpretation of Y as a dual space to X allows an analogy with functional analysis. Joint work with A. Chirvasitu, based on earlier joint work with V. Serganova.
