### How is an $S^1$-equivariant elliptic cohomology theory affected as we continuously vary the underlying elliptic curve?

Grojnowski constructs a $S^1$-equivariant cohomology theory over a complex elliptic curve $E$, designed to trivially satisfy: $$E^*_{S^1}(pt) = E$$
The functor $E^*_{S^1}(-)$ takes in a space $X$ ...

### Finite generation of equivariant cohomology rings

Let $G$ be a finite group acting on a topological space $X$. (In my applications, $X$ is the classifying space of a compact Lie group.) Let $H^\ast(-)=H^\ast(-;\mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z})$ denote mod 2 ...

### A Property of Generalized Equivariant Cohomology

Let $G_i$ be a compact Lie group, $i=1,2$, and let $E_{G_i}^*$ be a $\mathbb{Z}$-graded complex-oriented $G_i$-equivariant generalized cohomology theory with commutative products. Let $X_i$ be a ...

### Is there any “deep” relation between the localization theorem of equivariant cohomology and the localization theorem of equivariant K-theory

First let's consider equivariant cohomology: if a compact Lie group $G$ acts on a compact manifold $M$. We have the equivariant cohomology $ H_G(M)$ defined as the cohomology of the cochain complex ...

### Example request: equivariant formality versus formality for homogeneous spaces

Recall that a continuous action of a compact Lie group $T$ on a space $X$ is said to be equivariantly formal if the Borel equivariant cohomology $H^*(X \times_T ET;\mathbb Q)$ surjects through ...

### Equivariant Poincare Series of Based Loop Group of SU(2)

Let $\Omega SU(2)$ denote the based loop group of $SU(2)$, and consider the action of $S^1$ on $\Omega SU(2)$ as a maximal torus of $SU(2)$. (This is not the "loop rotation" action.) Is there an ...

### J-function of cotangent bundle of complete flag variety

Givental and Kim showed that the $J$-function of the complete flag variety $Fl_n=SL_{n}/B$ becomes an eigenfunction of the Toda Hamiltonian. How about the $J$-function of the cotangent bundle ...

### Equivariant version of cyclic versus de Rham (co)homology of commutative algebras?

Let $A$ be a commutative algebra that is a $g$-module, for some Abelian Lie algebra $g$. The primary example of my interest is when $A$ is the ring of functions over an affine variety, say ...

### Equivariant Sheaves, Local system

Let $(G,m)$ be a group scheme unipotent, and $L$ a local system of rank 1 on $G$ such that:
$m^*(L) \simeq L \boxtimes L $.
Then why is $L$ an equivariant sheaf on $G$ with the action the ...
