Hall-Littlewood functions and functions on the nilpotent cone

The following observation between the spaces of global sections of line bundles on the nilpotent cone and the Hall-Littlewood polynomials is made in a recent physics preprint 1403.0585. Is this a ...

Cominuscule property of nilpotent orbits

Let $G$ be a complex reductive Lie group, $G/P$ a flag manifold, and $\Phi: T^* G/P \to {\mathfrak g}^*$ the moment map. So $\Phi(T^* G/P)$ is the closure of a nilpotent orbit. Lots of classes of ...

Divisibility of all entries in an intersection form

What are situations where one can conclude that all entries of an intersection form are divisible by a fixed integer? More precisely: $F \subset S$ is a proper connected (usually reducible) ...

What does the nilpotent cone represent?

Notation Let $\mathfrak g$ be a the Lie algebra of an algebraic group $G\subseteq GL(V)$ over a(n algebraically closed) field $k$ (I'm actually thinking $G=GL_n$, so $\mathfrak g=\mathfrak{gl}_n$). ...
