摘要 Abstract

Classical representation theory studies representations of, for example, groups and algebras by linear operators. Higher representation theory is a modern "upgrade" of the classical representation theory. It studies representations of 2-categories by functors and natural transformations. In this talk I will try to survey the history of higher representation theory and outline some of its achievements and challenges.​
