OIST Representation Theory Seminar

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 - 09:00 to 10:00
On Zoom

Speaker:  Mahir Can, Tulane University

Title: Spherical Varieties and Combinatorics

Abstract: Let G be a reductive complex algebraic group with a Borel subgroup B. A spherical G-variety is an irreducible normal G-variety X where B has an open orbit. If X is affine, or if it is projective but endowed with a G-linearized ample line bundle, then the group action criteria for the sphericality is in fact equivalent to the representation theoretic statement that a certain space of functions (related to X) is multiplicity-free as a G-module. In this talk, we will discuss the following question about a class of spherical varieties: if X is a Schubert variety for G, then when do we know that X is a spherical L-variety, where L is the stabilizer of X in G.
