Categorical Lie algebra actions and braid group actions Speaker(s): Joel Kamnitzer
Abstract: We will discuss the notion of categorical Lie algebra actions, as introduced by Rouquier and KhovanovLauda. In particular, we will give examples of categorical Lie algebra actions on derived categories of coherent sheaves. We will show that such categorical Lie algebra actions lead to actions of braid groups.
