Master:
V4A3 Representation Theory I
Mi 10.1511:45, Fr 8:15  9:45 (via Zoom)
Exercise classes: See
Webpage of Dr. Gustavo Jasso.
The communication runs mainly via eCampus and via Gustavo Jasso's webpage.
Prerequisites:
You need to know some foundations of representation theory of
algebras (KrullRemakSchmidt, JordanHölder, categories and functors,
quivers and path algebras, semisimple algebras, semisimple modules,
Jacobson radical, projective modules).
In SS 20 I gave an introductory course on representation theory.
The lectures notes of this course are now available on
eCampus and on Dr. Jasso's webpage (for getting the necessary login data, please Email Dr. Jasso). You should read these notes before the start of WS 20/21.
For the first half of RT I you can focus in Parts 1 and 2 of the notes.
With the exception of Part 5, the other parts will be needed in the second half.
Content of Representation Theory I:
This course is on the representation theory of finitedimensional
Kalgebras (associative with 1, mostly noncommutative, K is a field).
Of special interest are path algebras of quivers.
Here is a list of topics:

Introduction to Homological Algebra

Reminder on finitedimensional algebras, path algebras of quivers,
properties of finite length modules,
semisimple modules, projective modules.

Homological dimensions

Homological conjectures

MoritaTachikawa correspondence, Auslander correspondence
Lecture notes:
There will be complete and very detailed lecture notes.
Usually I will upload these notes just before a lecture or immediately after.
Format of the course: All lectures will be via Zoom.
I will mostly try to write on my notepad. However, in contrast to a
traditional black board lecture, I'm much slower when I use the notepad.
So from time to time I might just sketch a lengthy proof, explain all the
main steps and key ideas and provide a more detailed proof in the lecture notes.
The same applies occasionally to the discussion of lengthy excamples.
There will be additional question and answer sessions during the semester.
This depends on the demand.
I'm also happy to make additional individual or small group Zoom appointments
if you
have any questions.
You can also ask me questions on the lecture notes from the previous semester.
What I expect of you:

Please keep your webcam switched on during all Zoom lectures.
This will help you concentrate on the lectures and it also creates a much
better atmosphere.

I expect and encourage that you ask questions during the lecture.

I expect that you read the lecture notes on a regular basis.

I expect that you actively participate in the Exercise classes.
