Title: New trends in representation theory

Abstract: Cluster algebras, introduced in the early 2000s, followed by their categorifications are transforming representation theory. They have opened up the field to new techniques and methods by introducing, for example, topological geometry and surface combinatorics to the theory.  In this talk, we shall see how this helped create a new framework for representation theory, leading to surprising advances towards the solution of old conjectures and to exciting new connections with modern homological algebra.
