Master course:

This is a 9 credit points course.

Registering to the course in C@mpus is possible.

Responsible for this course: Steffen Koenig

Lectures and problem classes:

Monday 9:45 to 11:15 in seminar room 7.527. (Starting April 8th.)

Wednesday 9:45 to 11:15 in seminar room 7.527.

Friday 9:45 to 11:15 in seminar room 7.527.

(In the first teaching week, on Friday April 12th, there will be a lecture instead of a problem class.)

Prerequisites: Linear Algebra 1 and 2, Algebra. Basic knowledge in representation theory (Grundlagen der Darstellungstheorie, Algebra 2), and knowledge about some parts of Higher Structures 1. Not being afraid of abstract structures. Enjoying mathematics.

Introductory material on representation theory also can be found on the web sites of previous courses such as:

Representation Theory 1 (winter semester 2020/21)

Representation theory 2 (summer semester 2021).

The course will start with chapter 7, continuing some material covered in Higher Structures 1.

Contents: Behind familiar structures such as rings and modules there are further structures that provide additional information and allow for a deeper understanding. The first part of this two semester course has been focussing on such hidden structures behind rings and modules and on applications of these. In part 2 of the course, the focus will shift to higher structures behind module categories and other categories.
