## Geometry Seminar - Abstracts

### Talk

Thursday 4 April 2024, 16:00 - 17:00 in HG00.308

**Stefan Kolb** (Newcastle)

*Quantum symmetric pairs, K-matrices and deformations*

### Abstract

In this talk I will give an introduction to the theory of quantum
symmetric pairs. I will then explain how quasi K-matrices can be used
to construct quantum symmetric pairs as explicit deformations of
quantum enveloping algebras of parabolic type. The talk aims to be
accessible by a general mathematical audience.
