Our first talk of Hilary term will be given by Dr. Vincent Gélinas, on the topic of the “n-subspace problem” and quiver representations. The first is a famous old problem of linear algebra, which asks to classify n-tuples of fixed dimension subspaces inside a vector space, while the second are the language used to study this problem. All you need is linear algebra and Gaussian reduction to follow the talk, and further results will be built up to, including deep connections to Representation and Lie Theory! As with all our talks, there will be a reception afterwards in the MathSoc room, with free refreshments. (Most events will be on Tuesdays this term – this is an exception!)
