### 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 ...

### What is the significance that the Springer resolution is a moment map?

Let $\mathcal{B}$ be the flag variety and $\mathcal{N} \subset \mathfrak{g}$ is the nilpotent cone. We know that the Springer resolution
$$
\mu: T^*\mathcal{B}\rightarrow \mathcal{N}
$$
is the moment ...
