2-Characters for finite 2-groups

Dmitriy Rumynin, University of Warwick. Part of the algebra seminar series.

I will discuss 2-representations, i.e. actions of 2-groups on 2-vector spaces. We will focus on character theory for 2-representations. To facilitate understanding by non-specialists, my 2-group will be a group during the talk. I will indicate how the results would work for more general 2-groups.'

 After each talk at 4:15pm there will be tea/coffee in the Common Room at level 9 in Maths building. The current seminar organiser is Eleonore Faber.
