The first course focuses on algebraic-geometric aspects of representation theory. Kari Vilonen (Chicago) will give in his lectures an introduction into the geometric Langlands program and also report on latest developments.
The second course will be held by Nicolai Reshetikhin (Berkeley). He will focus on aspects of statistical mechanics related to the representation theory of $gl_\infty$, to statistics of various plane partitions.
Some recent developments in representation theory motivated by theoretical physics will be represented in Tetsuji Miwa’s course (Kyoto) on the construction of monomial basis of representations of vertex operator algebras. The key words here are Bosonic vertex operators, the affine $sl_2$-Kac-Moody algebra and Virasoro minimal series.
