Algebra Seminar

Homogeneous bundles over abelian varieties and representation theory


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

Please note the updated time and venue.


Michel Brion (Université Joseph Fourier)


Homogeneous bundles over abelian varieties and representation theory


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.

See the Algebra Seminar web page for information about other seminars in the series.
