2-representations of Soergel bimodules

Volodymyr Mazorchuk

Uppsala University, Sweden   -   mazor@math.uu.se

The aim of this talk is to describe recent progress in the study of 2-representations of the 2-category of Soergel bimodules over the coinvariant algebra of a finite Coxeter group. For finite Weyl groups this 2-category is biequivalent to the 2-category of projective functors on the principal block of the BGG category O associated with the corresponding finite dimensional simple complex Lie algebra. In many cases, it turns out that simple transitive 2-representations of the 2-category of Soergel bimodules have Lie-theoretic interpretation, which we will try to explain. Finally, we will also explain an ADE-type classification of certain integral matrices which poped up in the study of Soergel bimodules for general dihedral groups.

Joint work with Tobias Kildetoft (Uppsala University), Marco Mackaay (University of Algarve) and Jakob Zimmermann (Uppsala University).

Representation ring of Levi subgroups versus cohomology ring of flag varieties

Shrawan Kumar

University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA   -   kumar@math.unc.edu

Recall the classical result that the cup product structure constants for the singular cohomology with integral coefficients of the Grassmannian of $r$-planes coincide with the Littlewood-Richardson tensor product structure constants for $GL(r)$. Specifically, the result asserts that there is an explicit ring homomorphism $\phi: \text{Rep}_{poly}(GL(r)) \to H^*(Gr(r, n))$, where $Gr(r, n)$ denotes the Grassmannian of $r$-planes in $\mathbb{C}^n$ and $\text{Rep}_{poly} (GL(r))$ denotes the polynomial representation ring of $GL(r)$.

This work seeks to achieve one possible generalization of this classical result for $GL(r)$ and the Grassmannian $Gr(r,n)$ to the Levi subgroups of any reductive group $G$ and the corresponding flag varieties.

On the Demazure Type Structure of Graded Limits of Representations of Quantum Affine Algebras

Adriano Moura

University of Campinas, Brazil   -   aamoura@ime.unicamp.br

The finite-dimensional representation theory of quantum affine algebras has been subject of intense study for the past two decades motivated originally by the mathematical-physics literature. Although the irreducible representations have been classified in the early days of the development of the theory, unraveling their structure in general remains a chalenging problem. Recently, the character of several important classes of irreducible modules have been computed by relating them to Demazure modules. We shall discuss recent results in this direction. In particular, we present a result showing that Demazure modules of level 2 appear as the graded limits of representations in the subcategories introduced by Hernandez-Leclerc in connection to monoidal categorification of certain cluster algebras.

Positivity of parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials

Nicolas Libedinsky

Universidad de Chile, Chile   -   nlibedinsky@gmail.com

We give diagrammatic categorifications of the spherical and of the anti-spherical modules for any Coxeter group. Our main theorem gives a “light leaves” basis of morphisms in these categorifications. We deduce that all flavours of parabolic Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials have positive coefficients (for arbitrary choices of subsets of simple reflections).

Tensor products of minimal affinizations in type $A$

Fernanda Pereira

Aeronautics Institute of Technology, Brazil   -   fpereira@ita.br

For a quantum affine algebra of type $A$, we describe the irreducible factors of the tensor product of a general minimal affinization with a Kirillov-Reshetikhin module associated to an extreme node of the Dynkin diagram of the underlying simple Lie algebra. More precisely, we give conditions on the Drinfeld polynomials for the tensor product of the corresponding irreducible modules to be irreducible. In the reducible case we show that the product has exactly two factors and describe them.

K-groups in the theory of symmetric spaces

Wend Werner

Münster University, Germany   -   wwerner@uni-muenster.de

The structure of symmetric spaces is very well encoded into an algebraic structure closely related to C*-algebras. Using this relationship to define K-theory for (hermitian, non-compact) symmetric spaces permits to replace root systems by K-groups in their classification. Classification beyond well-known results exist for inductive limits.

Belavin-Drinfeld Lie bialgebras and quantum groups (Galois cohomology considerations)

Arturo Pianzola

CAECE-Alberta   -   a.pianzola@gmail.com

In the study of Lie bialgebra structures over C[[t]] certain "cohomology theories" were introduced by B. Kadets, E. Karolinsky, I Pop and A. Stolin. We will explain how these theories can be explained/reformulated in terms of Galois cohomology. By doing so we will be able to establish some open conjectures.

cohomology of finite, algebraic, and quantum groups

Leonard Scott

The University of Virginia, USA   -   lls2l@virginia.edu

I will discuss some interrelated topics in the cohomology and Ext groups for finite groups of Lie type, algebraic groups, and quantum groups. Of interest are 1)the negative solution to an old (1961) conjecture on maximal subgroups of finite groups, via counterexamples due to Frank Luebeck and a student of mine, Tim Sprowl, using Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials and algebraic groups cohomology. 2)three conjectures by myself and Brian Parshall, on the interrelationship of Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials and cohomology/Ext groups for modules in the algebraic groups case which come from irreducible modules for quantum groups. 3) the solution of the third of the above conjectures by a student, Hankyung Ko, of Parshall. One consequence is the calculation of all Ext$^n$ groups between irreducible modules for quantum groups in type A at a root of unity, even with singular highest weights.

Gröbner bases for local Weyl modules for generalized current $\mathfrak{sl}_2$-algebras

Angelo Bianchi

Federal University of São Paulo - UNIFESP, Brazil   -   acbianchi@unifesp.br

We use the theory of Gröbner bases for ideals to construct linear bases for the local Weyl modules for a generalized current algebra $\mathfrak{sl}_2\otimes_\mathbb C \mathbb C[t_1,\dots,t_n]$ associated to the finite-dimensional complex simple Lie algebra $\mathfrak{sl}_2$ and the polynomial algebra $\mathbb C[t_1,\dots,t_n]$ with $n=1,2,3$.

The main result is an explicit construction of linear bases for these important families of modules. In particular, we obtain some formulas to express the dimension of such modules. It is related to some works of Chari-Loktev, Chari-Pressley, Feigin-Loktev, and Loktev.

Lie subalgebras of the matrix quantum pseudo differential operators

Karina Batistelli

CIEM- Famaf, Argentina   -   khbatistelli@gmail.com

We give a complete description of the anti-involutions that preserve the principal gradation of the algebra $\mathscr{S}_{q,N}$ of $N \times N$ matrix quantum pseudodifferential operators and we describe the Lie subalgebras of its minus fixed points. We obtain, up to conjugation, two families of anti-involutions that show quite different results when $n=N$ and $n

Equidimensionality of some Gelfand-Tsetlin varieties

Germán Benitez Monsalve

Instituto de Matemática e Estatística (IME) / Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Brazil   -   gabm03@gmail.com

S. Ovsienko proved in $2003$ that the Gelfand-Tsetlin variety for $gl(n)$ is equidimensional, i.e., all its irreducible components had the same dimension, in that case, such dimension is the dimension of affine space minus the number of equations. This result allows:

1. It guarantees the existence of irreducible modules in $gl(n)$ which are parameterized by the maximal espectrum of the Gelfand-Tsetlin subalgebra for $gl(n)$.

2. The universal enveloping algebra of $gl(n)$ is free as left and right module over its Gelfand-Tsetlin subalgebra.

In this poster, we will show the Gelfand-Tsetlin variety for $gl(n)$, the version for the quantum group Restricted Yangian of gl(n) and its equidimesionality.

University of Campinas, Brazil   -   lazarord@ime.unicamp.br

We discuss the chiral the Rham complex (CDR) over a manifold $M$ with holonomy $G_2$. We will show how the vertex algebra of global sections of the CDR associated to $M$ contains two commuting copies of the Shatashvili-Vafa $G_2$ superconformal algebra.

Structure and Representations of Diferenttial Operators on the Torus

João Schwarz

USP, Brazil   -   jfschwarz.0791@gmail.com

We discuss a noncommutative version of Noether's Problem to the ring of differential opertors on the torus, in the case the finite group is the symmetric group or a Weyl group of the families B and D. We also discuss some facts about simple weight modules of the invariants of the differential operator ring under the action of such groups.

Chiral De Rham Complex Structure for Witt algebras

André Eduardo Zaidan

IME - USP, Brazil   -   andrezaidan@gmail.com

The Chiral de Rham complex in the case of a torus $\mathbb{T}^N$, is a tensor product of two vertex super algebras: $V^+_{Hyp}\otimes V_{\mathbb{Z}^N}$, one is the hyperbolic latice vertex algebra and the other is the euclidean latice vertex algebra. The space $M_{Hyp}(\gamma)\otimes V^k_{\mathbb{Z}^N}$ has a structure of a module for the Witt algebra, , where $M_{Hyp}(\gamma)$ is a module for the hyperbolic latice vertex algebra and $V^k_{\mathbb{Z}^N}$ is the subspace of fermionic degree $k$. These modules exhaust all exceptional generalized highest weight modules for this Lie algebra.
