DESCRIPTION:Satellite event of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics\n
\n\n\nCombinatorics around the q-Onsager algebra \n\nImportant announcemen
t\n\nDue to the current pandemic\, we are postponing the q-Onsager Algeb
ra Conference until the week of 28 June to 3 July 2021.\n\n \n\nAt the
conference we will be celebrating the 65th birthday of Paul Terwilliger. A
s such\, the general theme of this conference will be the mathematical top
ics that Paul has worked on over the years (which all have relationships t
o the q-Onsager algebra). These topics include the following:\n\n• Topic
s in algebraic graph theory\, such as distance-regular graphs\, associatio
n schemes\, the subconstituent algebra\, and the Q-polynomial property\;\n
\n• Topics in linear algebra\, such as Leonard pairs\, tridiagonal pairs
\, billiard arrays\, lowering-raising triples\, and a linear algebraic app
roach to the orthogonal polynomials of the Askey scheme\;\n\n• Topics in
Lie theory\, such as the tetrahedron algebra and the Onsager algebra\;\n\
n• Topics in algebras and their representations\, such as the equitable
presentation of Uq(sl2)\, the q-tetrahedron algebra\, the q-Onsager algebr
a in mathematical physics\, and the universal Askey-Wilson algebra.\n\nTh
e deadline for submitting abstracts for contributed talks has passed. Ho
wever\, further submissions may still be considered if space is available.
If interested\, please email the conference organizers.\n\nDate:\n\n28
