Partial relation extensions

Ibrahim Assem

Université de Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada   -   ibrahim.assem@usherbrooke.ca

It is well-known that cluster-tilted algebras introduced by Buan, Marsh and Reiten can equivalently be described as relation extensions, that is, trivial extensions of a tilted algebra C by its relation bimodule E. Also, any complete slice in modC embeds as a local slice in the module category of the cluster tilted algebra.

The objective of this talk is to introduce an intermediate class of algebras, called partial relation extensions, where E is replaced by one of its direct summands E'. Our main results show how one can compute the bound quiver and the module category of a partial relation extension. We also prove that a complete slice in modC embeds as local slice in the module category of its partial relation extensions.

Maximal Green Sequences

Kiyoshi Igusa

Brandeis University, USA   -   igusa@brandeis.edu

Recently a lot of progress has been made in the study of maximal green sequences. In this talk I will give an overview of, first the definition from many points of view using pictures and other figures, second what the major questions are, and third what progress has been made. I will also explain some of the key ideas of Brustle-Dupont-Perotin, Thomas-Todorov-Reiten, Garver-McConville that were used in my work with Gordana Todorov, Thomas Brustle and Steve Hermes on some of these problems.

About sums of compositions of irreducible morphisms

Nicolás Llodra Schat

Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, Argentina   -   nllodra@gmail.com

We consider $A$ an artin algebra, and $\mbox{mod}\,A$ the category of finitely generated right $A$-modules.

In this talk, we present some results about sums of compositions of irreducible morphisms between indecomposable $A$-modules in relation with the powers of the radical of its module category.

The notion of degree of an irreducible morphism, introduced by S. Liu [L], played a fundamental role to obtain such results.

In particular, we give a characterization of when the sums of compositions of irreducible morphisms of length exactly $n$, for $n=2,3,4$ and $5$ belong to $\Re^{n+1}$.

On the representation theory of the partition algebra

Rosa Orellana

Dartmouth College, USA   -   Rosa.C.Orellana@dartmouth.edu

The partition algebra was defined independently by Martin and Jones in the mid 1990s. In this talk I will discuss the representation theory of this algebra and how it connects to the representation theory of the symmetric group. In particular, I will show how the representation theory of the partition algebra is connected to the problem of decomposing the tensor product of irreducible representations of the symmetric group into irreducibles.

The blob algebra in positive characteristic and the $p$-Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials.

David Plaza

Universidad de Talca, Chile   -   dplaza@inst-mat.utalca.cl

In 2003, Martin and Woodcock observed that, over a field of characteristic zero, the decomposition numbers for the blob algebra are given by certain evaluations at $1$ of the Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials associated to the infinite dihedral group $W_\infty$.

In this talk, we prove that in characteristic $p>0$ the decomposition numbers for the blob algebra are given by evaluations at $1$ of the $p$-Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials associated to $W_\infty$. These polynomials arise as the entries of the change of basis matrix from the basis of the Hecke algebra $\mathcal{H}= \mathcal{H}(W_\infty)$ of $W_\infty$ obtained by decategorifying the corresponding indecomposable Soergel bimodules to the standard basis of $\mathcal{H}$.

In general, to calculate the $p$-Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials is a very hard task. However, for $W_\infty$, we are able to provide an easy algorithm to compute them.

A little bit of extra functoriality for Ext and the computation of the Gerstenhaber bracket

Mariano Suárez-Álvarez

Universidad de Buenos Aires — CONICET, Argentina   -   mariano@dm.ub.ar

We show that the action of the Lie algebra $HH^1(A)$ of outer derivations of an associative algebra $A$ on the Hochschild cohomology $HH^\bullet(A)$ of $A$ given by the Gerstenhaber bracket can be computed in terms of an arbitrary projective resolution of $A$ as an $A$-bimodule, without having recourse to comparison maps between the resolution and the bar resolution.

Split $t$-structures and torsion pairs in hereditary categories

Sonia Trepode

Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, Argentina   -   strepode@mdp.edu.ar

We give necessary and sufficient conditions for torsion pairs in a hereditary category to be in bijection with $t$-structures in the bounded derived category of that hereditary category. We prove that the existence of a split $t$-structure with nontrivial heart in a semiconnected Krull-Schmidt category implies that this category is equivalent to the derived category of a hereditary category. We construct a bijection between split torsion pairs in the module category of a tilted algebra having a complete slice in the preinjective component with corresponding $t$-structures. Finally, we classify split $t$-structures in the derived category of a hereditary algebra.

Gerstenhaber bracket via arbitrary resolution

Yury Volkov

Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil   -   wolf86_666@list.ru

Hochschild cohomology is an interesting derived invariant of an algebra. It is well known that it has a structure of a Gerstenhaber algebra, which includes the cup product and the Gerstenhaber bracket. There are some well known formulas for cup product via an arbitrary bimodule projective resolution of an algebra under consideration. One interesting formula for the Gerstenhaber bracket appeared recently in a work of C. Negron and S. Witherspoon. There the correctness of this formula is proved for a resolution with some restrictive properties. In the current talk we will see how to modify this formula in such a way that it becomes correct for any bimodule projective resolution. Also we represent some other interesting formulas and algorithms for computing the Gerstenhaber bracket on Hochschild cohomology of an algebra.

Representation of Twisted Tensor Products

Jack Arce Flores

Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú-PUCP, Perú   -   jarcef@pucp.edu.pe

We obtain a faithful representation of the twisted tensor product $B\otimes_{\chi}A$ of unital associative algebras, when B is finite dimensional. This generalizes the representations of [C] where $B=K[X]/$, [GGV] where $B=K[X]/$ and [JLNS] where $B=K^n$. Furthermore, we establish conditions to extend twisted tensor products $B\otimes_{\chi}A$ and $C \otimes_{\psi}A$ to a twisted tensor product $(B\times C)\otimes_{\varphi}A$.\\

Análisis del espectro de Grafos Jahangir

Wilsmar dos Santos

Cerp del Litoral, Uruguay   -   spikesantos@hotmail.com

La energía de un grafo se define como la suma de los valores absolutos de los autovalores de su matriz de adyacencia. Por otro lado su espectro como el conjunto de los autovalores considerando sus multiplicidades. A partir de ello, matemáticos tales como McClelland, Koolen y Moulton entre otros, han definido expresiones algebraicas en función del número de aristas y vértices de un grafo para permitir estimar cotas inferiores y superiores de la energía de los mismos. Por otro lado, otros autores han definido con gran éxito la expresión algebraica de los autovalores de la matriz asociada a grafos tales como Caminos y Ciclos. El presente trabajo, refleja algunas de la conclusiones que se arribaron sobre la expresión algebraica de algunos de los autovalores en ciertos integrantes de la familia de los grafos Rueda, particularmente de Jahangir. Para ello se muestran algunos procedimientos, que se podrían extender para grafos Abanico, que involucran modelos generados por softwares, particiones equitativas de grafos hasta aplicaciones de teoremas de álgebra lineal en matrices vinculada a subgrafos inducidos y teorema de entrelazados de Cauchy.

Hochshild homology and cohomology of super Jordan plane

Sebastián Gustavo Reca

Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina   -   sebareca@gmail.com

We compute the Hochschild homology and cohomology of the algebra $A = \Bbbk\langle x, y | x^2, y^2x - xy^2 -xyx \rangle$, known as super Jordan plane. This algebra has Gelfand-Kirillov dimension equal to $2$, and it is also known as the Nichols algebra $B(V(-1,2))$. We also describe the algebra structure of the Hochschild cohomology.
