Evolutionary Dynamics of Human Behavior

Feng Fu is currently an associate professor of applied mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and holds an adjunct appointment in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth. Before joining Dartmouth in September 2015, he was a senior postdoc in theoretical biology under Sebastian Bonhoeffer at ETH Zurich starting in September 2012. Prior to that, he did his dissertation research and a subsequent postdoc training at Harvard University from 2007 to 2012.

Quantum affine Lie algebras and Gl(n) over non-Archimedean local fields

We will discus the relationship between the representation theory of quantum affine Lie algebras and that of groups of matrices over non-Archimedean local fields, such as the p-adic numbers. In particular, we will address the question of when the tensor of two simple representations of a quantum affine lie algebra is simple and the corresponding question of when the parabolic induction of two simple representations of p-adic matrices is simple.
