Learning Seminar in Representation Stability

Date:  Friday, October 22, 2021
Location:  1866 East Hall (3:00 PM to 3:50 PM)

Title:  Prime ideals in twisted commutative algebras

Abstract:   In representation stability, we are usually in a setting where a large
group G is acting on a large ring R. In this case, we will define the "correct"
notion of a prime ideal. Afterwards, we will discuss a key result of Snowden
(arXiv:2002.01152) which provides a link between these newly-defined
prime ideals and ordinary prime ideals when R is a twisted commutative
algebra (and G = GL).
