The Affine Grassmannian and Schur Indices

Student-Run Research Seminar

Speaker: Wenjun Niu, UC Davis
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Thu, Feb 27 2020, 12:10PM

The affine grassmannian is a rich geometric object that is studied in both number theory and math physics. I will introduce the geometry of the affine grassmannian, some well known results, and talk about its relation with Schur indices. This is a work in progress with Tudor Dimofte.
