If you have a question about this talk, please contact info@newton.ac.uk. HTLW04 - Quantum topology and categorified representation theory It goes without saying that diagonalization is an important tool in linear algebra and representation theory. In this talk I will discuss joint work with Ben Elias in which we develop a theory of diagonalization of functors, which has relevance both to higher representation theory and to categorified quantum invariants. For most of the talk I will use small examples to illustrate of components of the theory, as well as subtleties which are not visible on the linear algebra level. I will also state our Diagonalization Theorem which, informally, asserts that an object in a monoidal category is diagonalizable if it has enough ``eigenmaps''. Time allowing, I will also mention our main application, which is a diagonalization of the full-twist Rouquier complexes acting on Soergel bimodules in type A. The resulting categorical eigenprojections categorify q-deformed Young idempotents in Hecke algebras, and are also important for constructing colored link homology theories which, conjecturally, are functorial under 4-d cobordisms.
