Bregje will give the Seminar’s eleventh talk for Semester 1 tomorrow morning on Zoom. Please find the details below. Anyone who would like to attend the talk or join the mailing list is warmly invited to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstract: Given a reductive algebraic group, Springer constructed an action of the Weyl group W on the cohomology of certain closed subvarieties of the flag variety. Since then, Springer’s work has been reinterpreted in the language of perverse sheaves: the Springer correspondence is a bijection between irreducible representations of W and (certain) simple perverse sheaves on the nilpotent cone. The goal of this talk is to explain this correspondence. Time and date: 11 am Tuesday 15 June.
