Lie Theory Seminar at ISU

Dynkin diagrams

When and where?

Upcoming talk 4/28/2017

Adnan Abdulwahid (ISU): Nakayama Functor and Quiver Representations

We study the behavior of the Nakayama functor when applied to an indecomposable projective representation of Quivers. We show that the restriction of Nakayama functor to projQ is an equivalence of categories projQ ---> injQ.


Topics we might talk about in this seminar include
