Pure Maths Colloquium: Lorentzian Kac-Moody algebras

Presented by Viacheslav Nikulin (Liverpool),

17 March 2003 16:00 in CM221

"I shall give a review of the theory of Lorentzian (or hyperbolic of Borcherds type) Kac-Moody Lie algebras. They should be considered as a hyperbolic analogy of the well-known theories of finite-dimensional semi-simple and affine Kac--Moody Lie algebras. I will be mainly interested in the problem of their classification."
