### Trace on a KLR algebra

The cyclotomic KLR algebra is isomorphic to the Ariki-Koike algebra over a field and so admits a trace (this is used in Hu-Mathas' paper to define bases for the KLR algebra corresponding to Murphy and ...

### Signs in relations of Brundan--Kleshchev versus Khovanov--Lauda

The following relations in the definition of the quiver Hecke algebra in Brundan--Kleshchev's paper are
$$
y_r \psi_r e(\underline{i}) =(\psi_r y_{r+1} - \delta_{i_r,i_{r+1}})e(\underline{i});\\
$$

### Where does the canonical basis differ from the KLR basis?

The question implicitly asked in Ben Webster's question is: Does the canonical basis of Uq(n+) agree with the basis coming from categorification via Khovanov-Lauda-Rouqier algebras?
Thanks to ...

### Are cyclotomic Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier algebras symmetric?

Recall that for k a field, a finite dimensional k-algebra A is called symmetric if it is isomorphic to its dual as a bimodule of itself. Which is to say, there's a trace map t:A -> k such that t(ab)=...
