Abstract

Representation stability is a relatively new field that uses novel algebraic tools, such as FI-modules, to study stabilization phenomena in diverse areas of mathematics, including topology, representation theory, commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and algebraic combinatorics.

The Michigan Representation Stability Week is divided into two parts. The first three days are a workshop targeted to graduate students and post-docs who are not in the area, but would like an introduction to it. There will be three mini-series (by Jan Draisma, Andrew Putman, and Jennifer Wilson) that exposit some aspect of the field in detail, and three standalone talks covering additional topics. In the evenings, there will be problem sessions (with food!). The final two days are a conference with research talks. All participants are encouraged to come for the entire week.
