Pure Maths Colloquium: Localization and symplectic resolutions

Presented by Kevin McGerty, Oxford

7 December 2015 16:00 in CM221

The famous localization theorem of Beilinson and Bernstein is perhaps the seminal result in geometric representation theory, linking the study of the enveloping algebra of a semisimple Lie algebra to the geometry of the flag variety. We will review this theory and explain recent developments generalizing these results in the context of symplectic resolutions.
