CLOWN, the City Leicester Oxford Warwick network continues the LOW
Study Group in Algebraic Lie Theory. It is funded as part of the
academic interchange network on algebras,
representations and applications. Meetings under the CLOWN-scheme
will happen a few times a year in form of one-day or two-day
meetings. The aim is to introduce PhD students and young researchers
to recent developments in representation theory and to provide a
platform for young people. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The LOW Study Group in Algebraic Lie Theory

The Leicester Oxford Warwick study group meets about four days a year.
The aim is to introduce PhD students and young researchers to recent
developments in representation theory. Groups of participants work
through relevant literature and then give lectures on this material
during the meetings of the study group. LOW is supported by a London Mathematical Society Scheme 3
grant. All are welcome to attend and to participate in the
Quantum Linear Groups and Representations of GL_n(F_q)
Contact Person: Anne Henke
8./9.January 03 in Oxford.
The topic of this year's study group is
Quantum Linear Groups and Representations of GL_n(F_q). Our aim
is to further compare the topological point of view and the results by
Friedlander and Suslin with the state of knowledge in representation
theory. We will learn in more detail about the situation in
non-defining characteristic by reading through the recent AMS memoir
(No 706) by Brundan, Dipper and Kleshchev and related literature.
Simultaneously, we will compare with the situation in describing
characteristic (and with Friedlander-Suslin).

The chosen topic of the study group for this year is
functors and Schur algebras. This relates representation theory (in
particular, generic representation theory) of general linear groups
(both over finite and over infinite fields) with group cohomology,
with K-theory (in particular, topological Hochschild cohomology) and
with objects of interest in topology, such as unstable modules over
the Steenrod algebra. In the last few years, spectacular new results
have been achieved, for example the stability and comparison theorems
in the work of Friedlander and Suslin and their coauthors, and various
cohomology groups have been fully determined (as trigraded Hopf
