Gandalf (Pure Maths Student Seminar): Diophantine equations, rep theory and clusters

Presented by John Lawson, Durham

4 May 2016 16:00 in CM221

Cluster algebras are known to be closely linked to the study of the geometry of surfaces. Some recent work in this area accidentally gave rise to a number of diophantine equations along with a procedure to compute integer solutions. This might also have links in the geometric study of representations of surface fundamental groups, as well as quiver guage theories and cluster automorphisms. We will discuss ideas around this theme in whichever direction the audience prefer.
