Weyl group action on complexified Iwasawa decomposition

Let $G$ be a complex, reductive, algebraic group and let $G=KB$ be the complexified Iwasawa decomposition of $G$, see also [SW02]. Let $T$ be a maximal torus of $B$, therefore a maximal torus of $G$. ...

The Szego projector, the dual disc bundle $\overline{D}$ and representation of $S^1$ on $H^2$($\overline{D}$)

This construction arises when constructing the Szego projector. Let's consider the dual disc bundle $\overline{D}$ of a positive Hermitian line bundle ($L$,$h$) over a compact Kahler manifold $M$, ...

$P^1$ minus k points

For $k\geq 3$, and $k$ arbitrary points $S=( z_1,\cdots,z_k ) \in \mathbb{P}^1$, we can write $$ P^1 \setminus S \cong \mathbb{H}/G $$ where $\mathbb{H}$ is the upper-half plane and $G\subset ...

$SU(n)$-invariant subring of $\Lambda^{*}\mathbb{R}^{2n}$

I have the following question: Let $R \subset \Lambda^{*}\mathbb{R}^{2n}$ be the sub-ring of forms which are preserved by $SU(n)$. How can one show that this subring is generated by $\Omega_{0}$ and ...

Rep Theory Consequences of Bott--Weil--Borel

I've been getting interested in the (Bott--)Borel--Weil theorem lately. As a (mainly) geometer it is very interesting to see representation appearing (from nowhere as far as I can see) in the theory ...

Group Representations and Holomorphic Vectors Bundles over Homogeneous Spaces (extending Borel--Weil)

For a flag manifold $F$ of a group $G$, the Borel--Weil theorem deals with representations of $G$ on the holomorphic sections of the line bundles over $F$. Let us consider a general framework than ...

Why are the holomorphic line bundle sections finite dimensional?

I'm trying to understand the Borel--Weil theorem at the moment (not the whole Bott--Borel--Weil theorem as has been asked elsewhere). However, I am having a little difficulty finding a direct proof, ...

Non-characteristic is to pullback as (blank) is to pushforward.

Suppose $f:X\to Y$ is a map of smooth complex algebraic varieties. There is a pushforward functor $f_\ast : D(X) \to D(Y)$ on the derived category of $D$-modules. This certainly does not preserve ...

A cohomology computation request.

The short: Let $X= \{(x,y,z) \in \mathbb{C}^* \times \mathbb{C} \times \mathbb{C} \, |\, yz-x\neq 0\}$ Compute $H^*_c(X)$ (say with $\mathbb{C}$-coefficients). The long: Unless I messed something ...

The real group orbits on the flag variety always contains the holomorphic directions?

Let $G$ be a real semisimple Lie group and $\mathfrak{g}$ be its complexified Lie algebra. We have the flag variety $\mathcal{B}$ of $\mathfrak{g}$ which is the set of all Borel subalgebras of ...

Conformal Killing spinors

In general I would like to know about the significance of conformal Killing spinors (especially keeping in mind supersymmetric theories on curved space-time). If $\epsilon$ and the $\bar{\epsilon}$ ...
