### Finer classification of semistable sheaves

Usually in the moduli space of semistable sheaves, two semistable sheaves correspond to one point if and only if they are S-equvialent, i.e. the graded objects associated to their Jordan-Holder ...

### When a stack quotient coincides with GIT quotient?

Let $G$ be a reductive group over $\mathbb{C}$, and $H=H_r\ltimes H_u$ be a subgroup of $G$. Here, $H_u$ is unipotent and $H_r$ is reductive. Question: Is it true that when $G/H$ is open in its affine ...

### Is $\langle\chi,\lambda\rangle=0$, whenever the limit exists? Where is the mistake?

Suppose $G$ is a linearly reductive algebraic group acting linearly on a finite dimensional vector space $V$ over $\mathbb{C}$. This induces an action on the coordinate ring $\mathbb{C}[V]$ (see here)....
