“Algebraic and Geometric Aspects of Representation Theory”

Curitiba-Brazil

February 25 to March 09, 2013


The school aims to introducing undergraduate, master and Ph.D. students from Brazil and other countries in South America, to active topics in Representation Theory, focusing on algebraic and geometric methods. This is a two-weeks long event, where the first week is devoted to the study of algebraic methods arising in Representation Theory, while the second week is concerned with geometric tools applied to Representation Theory. The program for both weeks consists on mini-courses taught by mathematicians from different countries including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, France and Switzerland. Also there will be invited talks given by specialists in Representation Theory and related topics.


The event will take place in the campus Centro Politécnico of Universidade Federal do Paraná, located in the city of Curitiba, the southern Brazilian largest city and capital of the state of Paraná. Our institution is regarded as the main university of the state of Paraná.
