Quantum subgroups, simple Lie groups, and generalizations (1/2)
Speaker: Adrian Ocneanu, Penn State
Abstract: Simple Lie groups are built from copies of SU(2) using crystallographic information given by finite subgroups of SU(2). The Lie group of type E_8 is naturally built from the group of symmetries of the icosahedron. We shall detail this process and its natural generalizations.
