School Colloquium——Cluster algebras
报告人：Fan Qin (Shanghai Jiao Tong University)
Abstract: Cluster algebras were introduced by Fomin and Zelevinsky around the year 2000. Their work were rooted in the desire to understand the dual canonical bases for quantum groups and the theory of total positivity. The theory of cluster algebras has enjoyed a rapid growth and it has soon been linked to many other topics.
In this talk, we will give an introduction to cluster algebras and some recent progress. We present important concpets and results via easy yet non-trivial topological examples.
