What is... an m-trace?

Andres Fontalvo Orozco talk

Date: 24.09.19  Time: 17.15 - 18.30  Room:

An m-trace is a generalization of the concept of the trace of a matrix. In this talk I will first introduce the categorical trace, and review some of its interesting properties and some of the problems that arise when used in a non semisimple setting. Finally, I will introduce the m-trace as a way to fix these issues.
