Abstract: 

The class of (mildly) nonassociative algebras known as Jordan algebras were firstly introduced during the '30s of last century in order to formalize the algebraic structure underlying a finite dimensional quantum space. In this talk I shall give some standard theorems in the theory of Jordan algebras together with their representation theory, then I will present some recent results in the theory of differential calculus and of connections on Jordan modules.
