## Daniel McLaury - Research

My interests are in algebraic geometry and related areas of mathematics. So far I've written one paper:

- D. McLaury, "Irreducible Representations of Baumslag-Solitar Groups." Submitted; arXiv:1112.3952, 2011.

**Abstract**: "We classify the finite-dimensional irreducible linear representations of the Baumslag-Solitar groups

BS(p,q) = < a, b | a b^{p} = b^{q} a >
for relatively prime p and q. The general strategy of the argument is to consider the matrix group given by image of a representation and study its Zariski closure in GL_{n}(C)."
