Symmetry, polynomials and quantisation

Author: A. Ram (University of Melbourne)

Abstract

These talks will provide a pictorial approach to Weyl groups, braid groups and their Hecke algebras. With the pictures in hand, we can use them to study orthogonal polynomials, representations of braid groups, solutions of difference and differential equations, integrable systems and the quantisations that produce them.
