Speaker: Siddharth Venkatesh, MIT

Abstract: In this talk, I will give on overview of the Verlinde category, a symmetric tensor category that is a universal base for semi simple symmetric tensor categories over a field of positive characteristic. In particular, I will discuss some fundamental properties of commutative algebras and Hopf algebras in this category.
