If you have a question about this talk, please contact Stacey Law. The Jones-Wenzl idempotents are celebrated elements of Temperley-Lieb algebras. Their existence have far-reaching consequences and they are the smallest and easiest examples of “clasps” (also known as “magic weave elements”) which arise in the study of certain categories of U_q(sl_n) modules. In this talk, we will take a whirlwind tour through the representation theory of Temperley-Lieb algebras over arbitrary (mixed) characteristic followed by a more sedate, careful, walk through the construction of the generalised Jones-Wenzl idempotents. The procedure is suggestive of a larger theory, and we will briefly touch on applications of the construction to tilting categories and relations to other interesting (positive characteristic) constructions.
