Speaker: Theo Johnson-Freyd (Dalhousie University)
Title: Separable and central simple (higher) algebras
Most of my talk will be a review of the famous characterization of separable algebras in terms of dualizability/adjunctibility conditions, and of central simple algebras in terms of invertibility conditions, in the bicategory of algebras and bimodules. I then describe my recent generalization of these results in which algebras are replaced by monoidal (higher) categories. Prerequisites: some familiarity with the bicategory of algebras and bimodules, as explained for instance in the talk by Robert Paré.
