Davis Lazowski will talk about

``Quiver Representations":

Abstract: Quiver representations give a beautiful, pictorial way to encode algebraic data. In this talk, the speaker will introduce quiver representations and study simple examples. At the end, the speaker will briefly survey applications to Lie theory and algebraic topology. The talk assumes some knowledge of linear algebra.
