Survey of Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry
coordinated by Jenia Tevelev (UMass Amherst)
This `tapas’ course will consist of a series of separate 2- or 3-week introductions to specific topics within combinatorial algebraic geometry. The objective is to convey both the breath of the topics and the range of distinct perspectives within the field. The schedule can be found here.
Time: Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00-12:20 in Room 309 (JSL) at the Fields Institute.
Topics in representation theory: geometry of flag varieties (MAT1105HF)
by Joel Kamnitzer (Toronto)
The geometry of flag varieties is a central topic in modern representation theory and combinatorial algebraic geometry. We will cover Schubert stratification, cohomology of flag varieties and Schubert calculus, line bundles and Borel-Weil theory, and Springer theory. We will not assume any background knowledge of Lie theory or algebraic geometry.
Time: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 13:00-14:00 in Room 309 (JSL) at the Fields Institute.
