|Title||Quiver Hecke algebras and the symmetric and alternating groups|
|Presenter||Andrew Mathas (The University of Sydney)|
In 2009 Brundan and Kleshchev transformed the representation theory of the symmetric groups and related algebras when they proved that the group algebras of the symmetric groups admit a Z-grading. In this talk, I explain why this result is important, how it relates to the classical representation theory of the symmetric groups and how this result can be extended to the alternating groups.
