Title:Matrix with non-commutative entries and Family algebras
Seminar:Department of Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Alexandre Kirillov, University of Pennsylvania
Abstract:
Matrices with non-commutative elements are used as long as ordinary matrices, but the theory of such matrices barely exists. I argue that a relatively natural and useful theory can be developed for a special kind of such matrices. Namely, for those who satisfy the Hamilton-Cayley identity. A rich source of such matrices is the theory of Family algebras, related with representations of Lie algebras. The definition and simple example of Family algebras will be given.
