Martin Andler

Martin Andler Martin Andler teaches mathematics at the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin; he has held visiting positions at MIT and Rutgers University. His research focuses on two main areas: representation theory of Lie groups, and the history of 20th century mathematics. He is the chairman of Animath, a French organisation promoting mathematics for kids.


"A stroll through representation theory for Lie groups": Using simple examples, and a historical perspective, the talk will try to explain how this field has evolved from its origins in the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics to being central in several domains of mathematics.
