### Is every complex linear algebraic group a differential Galois group?

Let $G$ be a complex linear algebraic group. In other words, $G$ is a subvariety of the space of $n \times n$ complex matrices and $G$ is a group under matrix multiplication. Does there always ...

### Cohomology of the partial flag variety associated with the minimal nilpotent orbit

Let $G$ be a semi-simple group over complex number; for simplicity let us assume that it is simply laced. Let $X$ be the orbit of the highest root line in the adjoint representation of $G$. This is a ...
