Abstracts:

Peter Patzt, Purdue University: Representation stability for filtrations of Torelli groups

We show that finitely generated rational VIC_Q-modules and SI_Q-modules are uniformly representation stable and all their submodules are finitely generated. We use this to prove two conjectures of Church and Farb, which state that the quotients of the lower central series of the Torelli subgroups of Aut(F_n) and Mod(\Sigma_{g,1}) are uniformly representation stable as sequences of representations of the general linear groups and the symplectic groups, respectively. Furthermore we prove an analogous statement for their Johnson filtrations.

Christopher Schommer-Pries, University of Notre Dame: TBA


Directions

Talks will be held on the IUPUI campus in downtown Indianapolis. Details will appear here when available.
