# Categorification of the positive half of $\mathbb{U}_q(\mathfrak{sl}_2)$

 Working Seminar on Representation Theory Topic: Categorification of the positive half of $\mathbb{U}_q(\mathfrak{sl}_2)$ Speaker: Huanchen Bao Affiliation: Member, School of Mathematics Date: Wednesday, October 19 Time/Room: 11:00am - 12:00pm/S-101

We will talk about the categorification of the positive half of the quantum group $\mathbb{U}_q(\mathfrak{sl}_2)$ using the module categories over NilHecke algebras. We hope to explain the idea of categorification using this example.
