Algebra Seminar

Homogeneous bundles over abelian varieties and representation theory

Brion

Friday 5th October, 11:05--11:55am, Carslaw 375

Please note the updated time and venue.

Speaker:

Michel Brion (Université Joseph Fourier)

Title:

Homogeneous bundles over abelian varieties and representation theory

Abstract:

The homogeneous (or translation-invariant) vector bundles over an abelian variety have been described by Miyanishi and Mukai via methods of algebraic geometry. We show how to recover their results by a representation-theoretic approach. This also yields a description of the homogeneous projective bundles, in terms of Heisenberg groups and their standard representations.

After the seminar we will take the speaker to lunch.
