Modular generalized Springer correspondence II: classical groups

Pramod N. Achar, Anthony Henderson, Daniel Juteau and Simon Riche


We construct a modular generalized Springer correspondence for any classical group, by generalizing to the modular setting various results of Lusztig in the case of characteristic-\(0\) coefficients. We determine the cuspidal pairs in all classical types, and compute the correspondence explicitly for \(\mathrm{SL}(n)\) with coefficients of arbitrary characteristic and for \(\mathrm{SO}(n)\) and \(\mathrm{Sp}(2n)\) with characteristic-\(2\) coefficients.
