Noncommutative Invariant Theory
Seattle Workshop 2012

May 26-27, 2012


Group actions (or Hopf algebra actions) on noncommutative algebras is one of the main themes in noncommutative invariant theory. This topic is closely related Artin-Schleter regular algebras and noncommutative algebraic geometry, symplectic reflection algebras, Calabi-Yau algebras and noncommutative resolutions, reperesentation theory and combinatorics. We emphasize on recent developments and new directions in this area. The workshop brings together experts working in various aspects of noncommutative invariant theory and encourages interaction between all participants. In addition to regular research talks, leading experts in the area will give some survey talks.
