Title: Euclidean 4-space geometry via its Clifford algebra

Speaker: Eliahu Levy

Place: Amado 814, Technion

Abstract: If one seeks an associative algebra which corresponds canonically to a Euclidean space E (or to any vector space with a quadratic form Q) - canonically means that we refrain from "choosing", say a basis/coordinate system - an option is the Clifford algebra of the space, defined as the associative algebra generated by E, with the relations that the square in the algebra of each vector v in E equals Q(v)1. This algebra contains a plethora of interesting members and structures. Focusing mainly on the Euclidean 4-space, we shall describe its basics and try to stroll in its garden and pick some flowers. In particular, we shall encounter objects mentioned in Maria Elena Luna-Elizarraras' lecture: the 2-dim extension of the reals by a k satisfying k^2=1, and bi-quaternions.

Summer Projects in Mathematics at the Technion

The Mathematics Department at the Technion is inviting advanced undergraduate students to experience research level mathematics in a week of projects (Sunday-Thursday, September 6-10, 2015).  The projects will be mentored by members, postdocs and graduate students from the department.  In each project, a group of 3-5 students will investigate one of the following options (press on the project’s name to download its description):

We shall start the day with a meeting of all participants, and a one hour mathematical talk.  Later on, every project group shall separately continue to investigate.  We shall also have a couple of coffee-and-cookies breaks every day.

Housing and food for the week is supplied by the Technion.

To apply, fill the application form. The number of positions is limited, so apply as soon as possible.

Organizers: Ram Band, Michah Sageev and Amir Yehudayoff.

17/06/2015 - 24/06/2015

ERC                CMS

Workshop on Generalizations of Symmetric Spaces

17th-24th June, 2015

Registration is now open

Important Note: When booking your flight, please take into consideration that the conference shuttle leaves on June 17th at 10 am from Binyamina railway station, which is one hour by train from Ben Gurion airport. We thus recommend that you arrive either in the early morning of the 17th, or at the 16th. In the latter case we can help you find accommodation in Tel Aviv or Haifa for the night.

The  following mini-courses will be given:

Michel Brion (Institute Fourier) "Spherical Varieties"

Kai-Uwe Bux (Universität Bielefeld) "Finiteness Properties of Arithmetic Groups"

Dima Gourevitch (Weizmann Institute) "Multiplicity One Spaces"

Bertrand Rémy (École Polytechnique) "Compactifications of Buildings"


Additional research talks will be given by the participants

Organizers: Tobias Hartnick (Technion), Aloysius Helminck (NC State University), Ralf Köhl (JLU Gießen), Amos Nevo (Technion)
