I will define sites, i.e. categories with a Grothendieck topology on them. I will give several examples of sites of topological spaces and of schemes. Sites are the right categorical context for sheaf theory, and I will explain how. Finally, I will sketch a proof of Grothendieck's result that representable functors are sheaves in the fpqc topology - and hence also in the fppf and étale topology. This is mostly based on Vistoli's notes, section 2.3.

Automatic sequences - that is, sequences computable by finite automata,provide a basic model for computation. The main objective of the present talk is to show how a blend of ideas from number theory, combinatorics and ergodic theory can be used to characterize automatic sets with some
multiplicative properties.

I will recall the definition of sheaves and schemes and many of their properties, such as e.g. properness, smoothness, &c. This is all material from Hartshorne, parts II and III, with less of a focus on sheaf cohomology (already treated in the previous reading group, on DT invariants), and making use of the category theory background.

I will recall often-used categorical constructions, such as the Yoneda lemma, categorical limits, and adjunctions. Most examples will be algebraic or topological in nature, with more geometric examples coming in the next session. I will also introduce group objects and discrete group objects in a category.

 

Computability of the Minimal Genus on Second Homology

Surface representatives of second homology classes can be used to give geometric invariants for second homology classes, the most prominent examples are the genus and the Euler characteristic. In this talk I will introduce the minimal genus problem, explain why determining the minimal genus of a given homology class is in general undecidable, and how to compute it for a large class of "negatively-curved" spaces including 2-dimensional CAT(-1)-complexes.

Let k be a field which is finitely generated over the algebraic closure of F_p, L be its perfection and let A be a k-abelian variety. The main goal of this talk is to provide some new result on the structure of the torsion free part of A(L). These results are motivated by their application to the "full" Mordell-Lang conjecture.The main tool is the study of various p-adic incarnation of certain 1-motives attached to L-rational points of A.

Extending on the work of Kudla-Millson and Yuan-Zhang-Zhang, together with Yott we are constructing special cycles for a specific orthogonal Shimura variety. We further construct a generating series that has as coefficients the cohomology classes corresponding to the special cycle classes on the orthogonal Shimura variety and show the modularity of the generating series in the cohomology group over the complex numbers.

Given a nontrivial band sum of two knots, we may add full twists to the band to obtain a family of knots indexed by the integers. In this talk, I'll show that the knots in this family have the same Heegaard and instanton knot Floer homology but distinct Khovanov homology, generalizing a result of M. Hedden and L. Watson. A key component of the argument is a proof that each of the three knot homologies detects the trivial band. The main application is a verification of the generalized cosmetic crossing conjecture for split links.

Blowup equations as the functional equations for the Nekrasov partition function of 4-dimensional gauge theory was proposed by Nakajima-Yoshioka in 2003. Certain K-theoretic versions were soon later found by Göttsche, Nakajima and Yoshioka. I will talk about two further generalizations found in recent three years, an elliptic version from the viewpoint of gauge theory and a most general version from the viewpoint of topological string theory on local Calabi-Yau threefolds.

Hessenberg varieties are a distinguished family of projective varieties associated to a semisimple complex algebraic group. We use the formalism of perverse sheaves to study their cohomology rings. We give a partial characterization, in terms of the Springer correspondence, of the irreducible representations which appear in the action of the Weyl group on the cohomology ring of a regular semisimple Hessenberg variety.

Categorification of the Hecke algebra at roots of unity

Categorical representation theory is filled with graded additive categories (defined by generators and relations) whose Grothendieck groups are algebras over $\mathbb{Z}[q,q^{-1}]$. For example, Khovanov-Lauda-Rouquier (KLR) algebras categorify the quantum group, and the diagrammatic Hecke categories categorify Hecke algebras. Khovanov introduced Hopfological algebra in 2006 as a method to potentially categorify the specialization of these $\mathbb{Z}[q,q^{-1}]-algebras$ at $q = \zeta_n$ a root of unity. The schtick is this: one equips the category (e.g.

Conjectures on p-cells, tilting modules, and nilpotent orbits

For quantum groups at a root of unity, there is a web of theorems (due to Bezrukavnikov and Ostrik, and relying on work of Lusztig) connecting the following topics: (i) tilting modules; (ii) vector bundles on nilpotent orbits; and (iii) Kazhdan–Lusztig cells in the affine Weyl group. In this talk, I will review these results, and I will explain a (partly conjectural) analogous picture for reductive algebraic groups over fields of positive characteristic, inspired by a conjecture of Humphreys. This is joint work with W. Hardesty and S. Riche.

K-Motives and Koszul Duality

Koszul duality, as conceived by Beilinson-Ginzburg-Soergel, describes a remarkable symmetry in the representation theory of Langlands dual reductive groups. Geometrically, Koszul duality can be stated as an equivalence of categories of mixed (motivic) sheaves on flag varieties. In this talk, I will argue that there should be an an 'ungraded' version of Koszul duality between monodromic constructible sheaves and equivariant K-motives on flag varieties. For this, I will explain what K-motives are and present preliminary results.

A categorification of the Lusztig-Vogan module

Admissible representations of real reductive Lie groups are a key player in the world of unitary representation theory. The characters of irreducible admissible representations were described by Lusztig-Vogan in the 80’s in terms of a geometrically-defined module over the associated Hecke algebra. In this talk, I’ll describe a categorification of this module using Soergel bimodules, with a focus on examples. This is work in progress.

An extension of Suzuki's functor to the critical level

Suzuki's functor relates the representation theory of the affine Lie algebra to the representation theory of the rational Cherednik algebra in type A. In this talk, we discuss an extension of this functor to the critical level, t=0 case. This case is special because the respective categories of representations have large centres. Our main result describes the relationship between these centres, and provides a partial geometric interpretation in terms of Calogero-Moser spaces and opers.

Parabolic Hilbert schemes via the Dunkl-Opdam subalgebra

In this note we give an alternative presentation of the rational Cherednik algebra H_c corresponding to the permutation representation of S_n. As an application, we give an explicit combinatorial basis for all standard and simple modules if the denominator of c is at least n, and describe the action of H_c in this basis. We also give a basis for the irreducible quotient of the polynomial representation and compare it to the basis of fixed points in the homology of the parabolic Hilbert scheme of points on the plane curve singularity {x^n=y^m}.
