Loop Algebra Symmetry in Solvable Lattice Models

Algebra & Discrete Mathematics

Speaker: Barry McCoy, UC Berkeley/SUNY Stony Brook
Location: 693 Kerr
Start time: Thu, Feb 14 2002, 2:10PM

I will demonstrate that loop algera symmetry arises in certain solvable statistical models and show that there is a close connection the theory of finite dimensional representations of loop algebras and Bethe's ansatz.

Joint with the Analysis/Mathematical Physics seminar. Anne Schilling is the host.
