Book DetailsContemporary MathematicsVolume: 768; 2021; 342 ppMSC: Primary 17; 22; 11
This volume contains the proceedings of the conference Representation Theory XVI, held from June 25–29, 2019, in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
The articles in the volume address selected aspects of representation theory of reductive Lie groups and vertex algebras, and are written by prominent experts in the field as well as junior researchers. The three main topics of these articles are Lie theory, number theory, and vertex algebras.
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians interested in representation theory of reductive Lie groups and vertex algebras.
