Lie groups: from algebra to differential geometry, II

The main theme we are going to focus on in this semester are spinors
and their appearance and role in mathematics and physics. Spinors are
associated with subspaces in quadratic spaces and can be studied
(mathematically) from representation theoretic or
geometric perspective. The former one has to do with Clifford algebras
and their
representations, Spin groups, etc.; the latter approach focuses on the
behaviour of spinors under the action of Lie groups. Spinors are also
abundant in physics: they are used for the modelling of Fermi fields, the spinstatistics theorem is one of the pillars of
quantum field theory, they are intimately related to supersymmetry.
Apart from the analysis of spinors, in this semester we will also hear
several talks by excellent guests on related (or unrelated) topics.
