Pure Maths Colloquium: Zeta functions of representations

Presented by Michele Zordan , KU Leuven
15 January 2018 16:00 in CM219

Zeta functions of representations enumerate irreducible representations of a group. Asymptotic properties the number of irreducible representations have an interpretation in terms of analytic properties of the representation zeta function: for instance, the abscissa of convergence determines the rate of growth of the numbers of irreducible representations as their dimension grows.
This talk is a survey of some recent results regarding zeta functions of representations. There will be an introduction to the basic concepts which will also be complemented by examples.
