Categorification is a word striking fear into the heart of many a mathematician. Perhaps this is because it seems to involve replacing lots of familiar things (like sets and vector spaces) with more abstractlooking categories. In this talk I’ll try to describe what categorification is, using several examples from algebra and geometry. If I have enough time I’ll explain how this comes up in my own research into characters of tilting modules.
This talk is part of the Junior Algebra and Number Theory seminar series.
