`What is a good definition? In search of quantum groups'


题目:`What is a good definition? In search of quantum groups'

报告人:Adam Skalski (波兰科学院数学研究所)



摘要:Definitions form a fundamental part of the mathematical study. I will discuss the requirements that mathematicians put on `good' definitions and explain how such definitions develop, based on the notion of a locally compact quantum group, originating in 1970s and 1980s, and reaching a (possibly?) final form in the work of Kustermans and Vaes in 2000. Later developments will also be mentioned, but in general the talk will be accessible to general mathematical audience.
