MAT564: “Seminar Representation theory of $\mathfrak{sl}_2$”
Representation theory is an important and intensively studied area of modern
mathematics with applications to basically all major areas of mathematics and physics.
The aim of this seminar is to learn what representation theory is all about, with the
focus on the toy example of $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ where everything can be done explicitly.
