GAP Seminar

Meeting Details

For more information about this meeting, contact Nigel Higson, Mathieu Stiénon, Ping Xu.

Speaker: Vladimir Popov, Steklov Mathematical Institute

Abstract: The talk is aimed at describing the recent solution of the rationality problem for fields of rational functions on semisimple Lie algebras and the intimately related construction of counterexamples to the Gelfand--Kirillov conjecture on the fields of fractions of universal enveloping algebras of simple Lie algebras.
