  • Barcelona Weekend on Operator Algebras  November 16th and 17th, 2018
Presentation
This workshop aims to become the annual meeting of the Operator Algebras community in Barcelona. We would like to bring together leading experts and active researchers in the field to disseminate results as well as to set out perspectives for the future. We also plan to foster interactions between Algebra, Geometry and Topology.

  • Research Course — Left Braces

Date: 5-6/07/2018, 10:00-13:00 (both days) with a coffee break in the middle

Place: Dpt Matematiques, Seminari Torre mates (C1/366)

Speaker: Ferran Cedó (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona)

Abstract: In 2007 Rump introduced braces as a generalization of Jacobson radical rings to study  non-degenerate involutive set-theoretic solutions of the Yang–Baxter equation.
Bachiller in his Ph. D. thesis (2016) showed the power of the theory of braces solving difficult open problems. He also found interesting links with other algebraic structures such as Hopf–Galois extensions.  After this, the study and development of the theory of left braces has increased quickly. I this course I will explain an introduction to the brace theory.
