Introduction to cluster algebras
Speaker: Kyungyong Lee, University of Nebraska
Title: Introduction to cluster algebras
Abstract: Cluster algebras were discovered by Fomin and Zelevinsky in 2001. Since then, it has been shown that they are related to diverse areas of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, total positivity, quiver representations, string theory, statistical physics, non-commutative geometry, hyperbolic geometry, tropical geometry, KP solitons, discrete integrable systems, quantum mechanics, Lie theory, algebraic combinatorics, WKB analysis, and Poisson geometry. In this talk, I'll introduce cluster algebras and mention several interesting results.
