MAT572: “Online seminar diagrammatic algebra: a prototypical example”

The theory of Soergel bimodules emerged in the work of Wolfgang Soergel in the 1990s and 2000s. Soergel bimodules are certain algebraic objects, and the collection of these forms a monoidal category under tensor product. Soergel bimodules are fairly elementary objects, yet they have deep links to representation theory, topology and geometry, and have a remarkably rich internal structure.
The purpose of this seminar is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the theory of Soergel bimodules, in particular, using diagrammatic methods. Indeed, it is not an exaggeration to say that the computational power afforded by diagrammatics was the key breakthrough that allowed many recent advances on the one hand, but is beautiful in its own right on the other hand.
