3rd March 2021Pedro Vaz - Schur-Weyl duality, Verma modules, and categorification
I will explain my joint work with Abel Lacabanne on Schur-Weyl duality involving parabolic Verma modules. Several well-known algebras, like Ariki-Koike algebras, and (generalized) blob algebras for example, appear naturally as particular cases of our main result. In the second part of the talk I will briefly review the program of categorification Verma modules and explain how it is used to categorify the blob algebra of Martin and Saleur (this is joint work with Grégoire Naisse and Abel Lacabanne).
