MATH 42061/62061 Representations and Characters of Groups

CHEN20041 Mathematical Methods 2: see blackboard page.



I am interested in the interaction between algebra and geometry, particularly when there is a group action. Often this is described using the representation theory and cohomology of groups. At the moment I am particularly interested in stable categories for infinite groups and in group actions on rings and varieties.

If you are interested in postgraduate study at Manchester, please feel free to contact me.
