Graded manifolds are "manifolds where some coordinates anticommute".
Among other things, they provide a way to encode well-known
matematical structures in a geometric and concise fashion.
I plan to cover
- graded linear algebra, graded manifolds,
- how they encode $L_{\infty}$ algebras and Lie algebroids

We shall review some results in the theory of Hopf algebras and their tensor categories of representations, putting special emphasis in the classification problem in the semisimple case. We shall discuss the construction of extensions and semisimple Hopf algebras arising from matched pairs of finite groups as well as the more recent construction of group theoretical Hopf algebras.

A numerical semigroup is a subset of ${\mathbb N}$ closed under addition, containing the zero element, and with finite complement in ${\mathbb N}$. Even though the concept is easy to understand, there are many pro\-blems related to numerical semigroups that remain unsolved.
