Daniel Tubbenhauer (11.04.2016),

**Title**: Categorification at a root of unity in a nutshell,

**Abstract**:
The main point of this talk is to explain the motivation and goal of this seminar.
We will explain why categorification at a root of unity is interesting by giving a short history of the subject.
Then we will explain the main ideas behind the “How to”:

- How can one categorify the quantum group in the generic case using the KL-R approach
- We explain the difference between the generic quantum group and its root of unity cousins
- We explain Khovanov's main idea what can be done if some powers of generators are zero
- The main tool for this is the so-called $p$DG-structure

Arik Wilbert (18.04.2016),

**Title**: Quantum groups at roots of unity - the generic quantum group,
the small quantum group and the divided power quantum group,

**Abstract**:
The goal of this talk is to recall the basic definitions related to
quantum groups and their “dot-versions”. Then two different specializations
at roots of unity are explained: the so-called small quantum group and the divided power quantum group
(and their “dot-versions”). The focus lies on the $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ case.

Tim Seynnaeve (25.04.2016),

**Title**: “Generic” categorification: the KL-R
$2$-category I,

**Abstract**:
This talk recalls the categorification of (generic) quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ by
introducing the diagrammatic calculus due to Khovanov-Lauda.

**Sources**: [7, Sections 2 and 3]

Deniz Kus (02.05.2016),

**Title**: “Generic” categorification: the KL-R $2$-category II,

**Abstract**:
This talk, which continues to present the case of the generic quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$
categorification, presents the necessary steps to show that the Grothendieck group of the KL-R $2$-category
gives the desired result.

**Sources**: [7, Sections 2 and 3]

Sondre Kvamme (09.05.2016),

**Title**: Basics of $p$DG homological algebra I,

**Abstract**:
The main technical tool for categorification at roots
of unity is the so-called $p$DG homological algebra. The purpose
of this talk is to give the basic definitions regarding this $p$DG homological algebra.

**Sources**: [1, Section 2], [2, Subsections 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and 4.8]

Olaf Schnürer (23.05.2016),

**Title**: Basics of $p$DG homological algebra II,

**Abstract**:
In this talk more $p$DG homological algebra (needed later on) is introduced.

**Sources**: [1, Section 2], [2, Subsections 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and 4.8]

Jacinta Torres (30.05.2016),

**Title**: $p$-differentials on the KL-R $2$-category,

**Abstract**:
This talk introduce the $p$DG structure on the KL-R $2$-category in the $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ case.

**Sources**: [1, Section 4]

Ruslan Maksimau (06.06.2016),

**Title**: “Fantastic filtrations”,

**Abstract**:
The main tool to understand the Grothendieck group in the root of unity case are certain filtrations
which are discussed in details in this talk.

**Sources**: [1, Section 5]

Catharina Stroppel (13.06.2016),

**Title**: Decategorification: the small quantum group,

**Abstract**:
The purpose of this talk is to make precise how to categorify the small quantum
group at roots of unity by giving the details about how to compute the Grothendieck group.

**Sources**: [1, Section 6]

Tina Kanstrup (20.06.2016),

**Title**: The first step towards the divided power quantum group:
Grothendieck groups and the Karoubi envelope in the $p$DG case,

**Abstract**:
In abelian categorification it is a typical practice to take the Karoubi
envelope), while the $p$DG world requires a great deal more caution (as we will see later).
In this talk the basics about Karoubi envelopes are discussed - and then the changes which might appear
in the $p$DG case.

**Sources**: [2, Section 4], [5, Section 3]

Leonardo Patimo (04.07.2016),

**Title**: A brief review of thick calculus,

**Abstract**:
The so-called “thick calculus” is a method to
diagrammatically present the Karoubi envelope in case of categorified
quantum $\mathfrak{sl}_2$. This talk introduces the necessary diagrammatics
to understand the basics of this calculus.

**Sources**: [5, Section 4]

Daniel Tubbenhauer/Lars Thorge Jensen (11.07.2016),

**Title**: $p$DG thick calculus,

**Abstract**:
This talk introduces a “$p$DG thick calculus” which
enriches the “thick calculus” from the previous talk.

**Sources**: [2, Section 5]

Michael Ehrig (18.07.2016),

**Title**: Decategorification: the divided power quantum group,

**Abstract**:
This talk makes it precise how
one can see that the decategorification gives back the divided power version (instead of the
small quantum group).
