Jantzen filtration for Kac modules 


A Jantzen type filtration is introduced for generalised Varma modules over Lie
superalgebras.  In the case of type I Lie superalgebras, we show that the generalized
Jantzen filtration for any Kac module is the unique Loewy filtration, and the
decomposition numbers of the layers of the filtration are determined by the coefficients
of inverse Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials.  Furthermore, the length of the Jantzen
filtration for any Kac module is equal to the degree of atypicality.  These results led
to a detailed description of the submodule lattices of Kac modules.  This is joint work
with Yucai Su.
