nLab George Lusztig

Selected works

George Lusztig is a mathematician at MIT, born in Romania. He has many deep contributions to Lie theory and representation theory, especially using and developing the methods of geometric representation theory. He discovered the canonical bases of quantum and Lie groups (in a sense dual to the crystal basis of Masaki Kashiwara).
