Geometric respectively topological methods are widely applied in representation theory. As far as I know mainly cohomological methods are used. I wonder if there are concrete applications of the ...
I hope this question is not too vague. Let $G$ be a complex reductive group, $B$ a Borel subgroup of $G$, and $P$ a parabolic containing $B$. Denote by $\pi:G/B\to G/P$ the canonical map. Consider ...
So, I know one really good technique for calculating Ext's between perverse sheaves/D-modules using topology: the convolution algebra formalism, worked out in great detail in the book of Chriss and ...
