Algebra Seminar

Schubert calculus for complex reflection groups

Ortiz

Friday 21st June, 11:05-11:55am, Carslaw 375

Speaker:

Omar Ortiz (University of Melbourne)

Title:

Schubert calculus for complex reflection groups

Abstract:

\(p\)-compact groups are the homotopy analogues of compact Lie groups. The Weyl group of a \(p\)-compact group is a complex reflection group. In this talk I will show how the information encoded in the Weyl group can be used to study \(p\)-compact flag varieties via moment graph theory, generalizing results of Goresky-Kottwitz-MacPherson in equivariant Schubert calculus.

We will take the speaker to lunch after the talk.
