Subfactors related to certain symmetric spaces

Presented by:

Tuesday 16th May 2017 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 2
One of the first examples of subfactors came from groups and subgroups.  In this talk we construct subfactors which can be considered analogs of the embeddings of O(N) into U(N) in the setting of fusion categories.  These are finite depth subfactors whose indices will go to infinity in the classical limit.  Its principal graph will give the induction-restriction graph of these groups in the limit.

The video for this talk should appear here if JavaScript is enabled.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
