Título Conferencia: Nahm's equations, orbits, and Lie superalgebras
Conferenciante: Roger Bielawski (Institut für Differentialgeometrie. Leibniz Universität Hannover)
Abstract: Nahm's equations are Lie-algebra valued ordinary differential equations which have been used to construct hyperkaehler metrics on many interesting manifolds, in particular on coadjoint orbit of complex semisimple Lie groups. These in turn found several applications in Lie theory and in representtation theory. In my talk I shall present a new interpretation of Nahm's equations and of the hyperkaehler structure on coadjoint orbits.
