Fundamental Gerbes and their Representations
Lei Zhang (Freie Universität Berlin)


In this talk I will first recall the definition of the étale fundamental group, then I will introduce the notion of Nori's fundamental group and explain its representations using the technics of Tannakian categories. Next I will introduce a beautiful geometric interpretation of Tannakian categories, namely the affine gerbes. Finally, I will introduce the notion of Nori gerbes due to N. Borne and A. Vistoli, and present a beautiful Tannakian interpretation of these Nori gerbes due to F. Tonini and me.
