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.
