Abstract

Representation theory is a field of mathematics with applications across the breadth of mathematical study in fields as diverse as number theory and physics. The study of higher (or categorical) representation theory is a modern set of tools that provides new insights into representation theoretic phenomena. This project aims to study categorified quantum groups and, in particular, the categorifications provided by diagrammatic algebras. The project aims to further develop the theory of Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier (KLR) algebras, providing important foundational results for future research to build upon.
