Young Researcher's Workshop on Positivity in Lie Groups
The aim of this workshop was to understand the notion of total positivity and Theta-positivity and how it relates to Higher Teichmüller theory. Theta-positivity is a notion of positivity in semisimple Lie groups and was recently introduced by Guichard and Wienhard in Positivity and higher Teichmüller theory as a generalization of Lusztig’s total positivity.
The workshop was aimed at graduate students that are interested in the topic. Every participant played an active role in the seminar - either by preparing a talk, or by organizing an exercise session to consolidate what has been learned.
The workshop took place from January 10th to 14th, 2022 at the IWH Heidelberg.
The list of participants includes: Lisa Ricci, Arnaud Maret, Marta Magnani, Sofia Amontova, Enrico Trebeschi, Thomas Le Fils, Victor Jaeck, Luca De Rosa, Suzanne Schlich, Jacques Audibert, Daniel Soskin, Alex Moriani, Colin Davalo, Max Riestenberg, Nguyen Thi Dang, Yohann Bouilly, Raphael Appenzeller, Francesco Fournier Facio, Samuel Bronstein, Xian Dai, Ilia Smilga, Jingyi Xue, Romeo Troubat, Clarence Kineider, Fernando Cadena Camacho, Merik Niemeyer, Valdo Tatitscheff, Balthazar Fléchelles, Pierre-Louis Blayac, Dani Kaufman, Xenia Flamm.
