Hopf Algebras and Actions
Seattle Workshop 2014

November 15-16, 2014


This is one of a series of NSF-funded workshops which meet once every few months during the academic year, organized by Geoff Mason, Susan Montgomery and Joe Wolf. The purpose of the program is to communicate results and ideas rather than to deliver polished presentations. The program also serves to acquaint graduate students in this area with a range of researchers in Lie theory, representation theory and related areas. The special theme of this workshop is "Hopf Algebras and Actions". Other workshops are listed here.
