### Formality of classifying spaces

Let $G$ be a compact Lie group (or reductive algebraic group over $\mathbb{C}$), and let $BG$ be its classifying space. Fix a prime $p$. Let $\mathcal{A}$ denote the dg algebra of singular cochains on ...

### Is the equivariant cohomology an equivariant cohomology?

Suppose a finite group $G$ acts piecewise linearly on a polyhedron $X$. Then there are two kinds of equivariant cohomology (or homology). $\bullet$ With coefficients in a $\Bbb Z G$-module $M$. A ...

### Why is the Nil-Hecke Algebra appearing?

The Nil-Hecke algebra is defined to be the subalgebra of the endomorphism ring of $\mathbb{C}[x_1,\ldots,x_n]$ generated by the operators of multiplication by $x_i$ and the divided difference ...

### Equivariant homology of $\Omega X$\/-space (references needed)?

Let $(X, *)$ be pointed a (1-connected) space, and let $\Omega X$ denote its based loops space. Then, as one knows very well, $\Omega X$ is a group up to homotopy (this includes all the necessary ...

### Is this a definition of equivariant derived category?

Let $X$ be a topological space and $G$ be a topological group acting on $X$, both locally compact Hausdorff. Denote by $D^b(X)$ the derived category of sheaves (say of abelian groups) on $X$. We ...

### Weights on equivariant cohomology?

Let $X$ be a quasi-projective variety over the complex numbers, equipped with an action of a linear algebraic group $G$. Is there a natural mixed Hodge structure on its equivariant cohomology? Is ...

### Atiyah-Guillemin-Sternberg convexity theorem

I would like to study the Atiyah-Guillemin-Sternberg convexity theorem: proof and applications. I am already familiarised with hamiltonian actions, moment maps...and with elementary Morse theory. So ...

### Equivariant algebraic K-theory of affine space

Unlike algebraic K-theory, equivariant K-theory of affine space (over a field $k$) can be quite nontrivial, depending on the action of the group in question. For example, if one takes the standard ...

### 2-functoriality of equivariant derived categories

I am wondering about the 2-functoriality in equivariant derived categories, and I hope that someone can clarify... (apologies if this is a stupid question) For the more precise formulation, recall ...

### Are these notions of strongly equivariant D-modules equivalent?

It seems that there are two notions of strongly equivaraint $D_X$- Modules and I would like to know if they are equivalent, or at least how they are related. Let $\rho: G\times X \rightarrow X$ be an ...

### Jets of Equivariant Vector Bundles

Let $M$ be a (compact) $G$-homogeneous space with fibre group $H$, and let ${\cal E}$ be a $G$-equivariant $k$-dimensional vector bundle over $M$ with corresponding representation $\pi:H \to$R$^k$. ...

### Do fixed point sets in equivariant crepant resolutions have the same cohomology? How about for the specific case of Nakajima quiver varieties?

A crepant resolution $f:Y\to X$ is a resolution of singularities with $f^*(K_X)=K_Y$. Crepant resolutions do not always exist, and when they exist they may not be unique. However, different crepant ...

### Equivariant handle decompositions

Suppose I have some smooth closed high-dimensional manifold $M$ acted on smoothly by a finite group $G$. By a metric averaging procedure, we can equip $M$ with a smooth Riemannian metric so that $G$ ...

### What is the right notion of equivariant Cech cohomology?

What is the right definition of equivariant Cech cohomology is so that given a $G$-space $X$, $H^1_G(X;H)$ classifies $G$-equivariant principal $H$-bundles on $X$?

### Equivariant versus retractive spaces: a reference request

Let $T$ be the category of compactly generated weak Hausdorff spaces with model structure given by Serre fibrations, Serre cofibrations and weak homotopy equivalences. Let $G = |G.|$ be the (geometric)...

### Do equivariant morphisms induce representable maps of quotient stacks?

Let $f: X \to Y$ be a $G$-equivariant map between schemes $X$, $Y$ with action of a flat group scheme $G$. Then why is the induced map of algebraic stacks $[X/G] \to [Y/G]$ representable?

### For a G-variety, what could one say about the motif of the corresponding simplicial variety

Let G be an algerbraic group, and X be a G-variety (that I will assume to be smooth). Then one can consider a simlicial variety whose terms are $G^i\times X$. This simplicial variety yields a 'complex ...

### What's the topology on the mapping space $Map_H(G, Y)$ when $G$ is not finite

When $G$ is a finite group and $H$ a closed subgroup of it, the sets of right cosets $H\backslash G$ has the discrete topology on it. Let $Y$ be a $H-$space. We have the $G-$homeomorphism \begin{...

### Vector bundles on a weighted projective stack

Put $X := \mathbb A^{n+1}\!-\lbrace0\rbrace$. Let $G=\mathbb C^*$ act on $X$ with (positive) weights $w_0,\dots,w_n$. The quotient stack $[X/G]$ is called the weighted projective stack. Each vector ...

### Classifying all Equivariant Bilinear Forms on a Finite-Dimensional Module

Given a finite dimensional (real) vector space $V$, and two non-degenerate bilinear forms $(\cdot,\cdot)_1$ and $(\cdot,\cdot)_2$, one can use a basic linear algebra argument to show that there exists ...

### How to calculate the equivariant cohomology ring of $P^2$?

It is well known that Kirwan's injection theorem gives an ring injection from $H^{\ast}_T(M)$ to $H^{\ast}_T(M^T)$ which is induced by the inclusion $M^T \to M$, where $T$ is a torus acting on ...

Does an equivariant version of (Toen)-Riemann-Roch theorem hold say over a smooth Deligne-Mumford stack $X$ over the complex numbers? Any references that state this explicitely? Are there formulas ...
