Title:Fermions as functors
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Zifeng Yang, Penn State and Capital Normal University, China
Abstract:
Bosons and Fermions are fundamental concepts in many constructions related to the representations of quantum (affine) algebras in theoretical physics and mathematical physics. Recently, we need to lift these concepts to functors of some categories, which might reflect some geometric constructions. In this talk, I will explain how to construct the categorical Fermions based on Khovanov's categori cation of Heisenberg algebra, and how these categori ed Fermions are related to the classical Boson-Fermions correspondence.
