Seminar

2020 Fall Seimnar on real reductive groups

This semester, 2020 Fall, we will focus on the representation theory of real reductive Lie groups.
Throughout these seminar talks, we hope to clarify the current status of the subject and stimulate collaborations. We expect the speakers to explain the technical details. The audiences are encouraged to interrupt the speaker and raise questions/make comments. Most lectures will be given in Chinese.

2020/10/23 3:30pm-4:30pm see above Daniel Wong On NON-unitary (g,K)-modules for complex simple Lie groups I We discuss several techniques detecting non-unitarity of representations of complex Lie groups G, such as bottom layer K-types, Dirac inequality and deformation of parameters. These techniques are essential in determining the unitary spectrum of G. We will also briefly mention where the difficulties arise as one applies the same techniques for general real reductive groups. SJTU

Room-1106Introduction to Springer theory
This is the first talk of my proposed seminar on Weyl group, Springer theory, Hecke algebra and related topics. As an orientation, I will first explain the content of Springer correspondence. Then I will briefly review the basic idea of the constructions of the Springer correspondence. In the end, I will discuss some relationships of the Springer theory with other fields, such as combinatorics and representation theory of reductive groups. If time permits, I will also discuss the generalized Springer correspondence.
