Please note the change of room.: From invariant polynomials to invariant distributions
Ort: MPI für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften Leipzig, Inselstr. 22, A3 01 (Sophus-Lie-SR)
GAMM-Seminar Please note the change of room. The theme of this lecture centers around two famous books, one by Hermann Weyl on “The Classical Groups: Their Invariants and Representations” (1939), another the six-volume work by I.M. Gelfand et al. on “Generalized Functions” (1960’s). I will discuss some broad ideas related to the theme of these two books, as well as some recent development in classical groups and their smooth representations.
