### a question on Deligne-Lusztig characters

Let $k$ be a finite field and $\bar k$ be its algebraic closure, and $F$ be the Frobenius map. Let $G$ be a reductive group over $\bar k$, $T$ be an $F$-invariant maximal torus of $G$, and $\theta$ be ...

### semisimple support of character sheaves

So the essential question is:
How should we think about, or if possible compute, the semisimple
support of a cuspidal character sheaf?
For example, let $G=SL_2$. We have the cuspidal character ...

### Naive question about classification of unipotent character sheaves

Let $G$ be a connected reductive algebraic group over (say) $\mathbb{C}$. The set $\hat{G}_u$ of isomorphism classes of unipotent irreducible character sheaves has some complicated classification in ...

### On cuspidal maximal tori of a connected reductive group

Let $G$ be the base change of a connected reductive group over ${\mathbb{F}}_q$ to $\overline{\mathbb{F}}_q$, and let $F$ be the associated geometric Frobenius on $G$. Let $W$ be the Weyl group of a ...

### An analogue of Deligne--Lusztig theory for real groups?

I am considering the following analogue of Deligne--Lusztig theory:
Take e.g. $G=GL_n(\mathbb{C})$, and let $F$ be the complex conjugate, then we have
$G^F=GL_n(\mathbb{R})$. Consider the ``Lang map''...

### learning Deligne-Lusztig theory

Can someone give me a roadmap for learning Deligne-Lusztig theory? (Except for the original article by Deligne and Lusztig)
Edit: You may assume knowledge of representation theory of finite groups (...

### Deligne-Lusztig and Character sheaves

Consider: $G$ - a nice group ($GL_n$) over a finite field $F$. $X$ - the flag variety. Consider a nice $G$-equivariant $l$-adic sheaf $\mathcal{M}$ on $X \times X$, equipped with Weil structure.
Fix $...

### A bijection between Lusztig series induced by inflation

Context:
Let $\pi: \widehat{G} \rightarrow G$ be a surjective morphism between connected reductive groups defined over $\mathbb{F}_q$ whose kernel is a central torus. Then $\pi : \widehat{G}^F \...

### Points on Deligne-Lusztig varieties: Interpreting Borels in relative position as flags with conditions

Background
I am studying the paper "On the Green polynomials of classical groups" by Lusztig, in which he computes the values of the Deligne-Lusztig representation, corresponding to a Coxeter element ...

### Is the Gelfand-Graev character isomorphic to a cohomology group for some sheaf on a Deligne-Lusztig variety?

Deligne-Lusztig theory
is awesome. You take a maximal torus $T$, you take a character $\theta$, construct a variety $X_T$$^*$, take etale cohomology, get a virtual character $R_T^\theta$, maybe it's ...
