Representation Theory on Spaces
Raphaƫl Rouquier, Department of Mathematics, UCLA,

Geometric representation theory uses geometrical objects to construct linear representations. I will discuss an emerging theory where those geometrical objects are themselves viewed as "representations of a higher group". More general "higher groups" should arise as invariants of algebraic varieties or categories and should act on the moduli spaces of enumerative geometry. I will describe some aspects of the representation theory of the "higher group" associated to a point.
