Period06 Oct - 12 Oct 2019
Modern Representation Theory has numerous applications in many mathematical areas such as algebraic geometry, combinatorics, convex geometry, mathematical physics, probability. Many of the object and problems of interest show up in a family. Degeneration techniques allow to study the properties of the whole family instead of concentrating on a single member. This idea has many incarnations in modern mathematics, including Newton-Okounkov bodies, tropical geometry, PBW degenerations, Hessenberg varieties. During the mini-workshop Degeneration Techniques in Representation Theory various sides of the existing applications of the degenerations techniques were discussed and several new possible directions were reported.
