### Non-invariant forms on loop Lie algebra of semisimple Lie group

Let us consider a Lie group $G$ with Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ and let $L\mathfrak{g} = C^\infty(S^1, \mathfrak{g})$ the Lie algebra of the loop group $LG$. My question is about continuous Lie ...

### Comparison of two well-known bases of the integral homology group of based loop group

Let $G$ be a compact simply-connected Lie group. Then one can look at the homology $H_*(\Omega G;\mathbb{Z})$ of the based-loop space $\Omega G$ in at least two different ways: (1) Via Bott-Samelson'...

### Sheafification of loop scheme/group

Let $X$ be a scheme over $K = k((t))$, where $k$ is a field. We define the loop scheme $LX$ to be the functor from the category of $k$-algebras to sets by $R \mapsto LX(R) := X(Spec (R((t))))$. Do we ...

### Central extensions of loop groups

Let $LG=\operatorname{Maps}(S^1,G)$ be the loop group of a compact Lie group $G$. I should add some adjectives to $G$, but for sake of simplicity let's just take $G=SU(2)$. There is a central ...

### Holomorphic line bundles on $\mathbb{P}^1$ from gluing data

Let $g$ be an $n \times n$ matrix of functions $g_{ij}(z)$ in $\mathbb{C}(z)$. Suppose that the $g_{ij}(z)$ have no poles on the annulus $1-\epsilon < |z| < 1+\epsilon$ and that $\det g(z)$ is ...

### Concise mathematical definition of the fusion product on the Verlinde ring?

The Verlinde ring of a (let us say) simply connected simple compact Lie group has as underlying additive group the Grothendieck group of representations of the central extension $\widehat{LG}$ of the ...

### Reconciling the affine grassmannian and the based loop group

I'm trying to reconcile the differences between the (algebraic) based loop group and the affine grassmannian. I once believed that I understood the relationship, but I just read a paper which has ...

### adjoint orbit of (twisted) loop group

Let $G$ be the twisted loop group of $SL_2(\mathbb C)$ and let $g$ be its Lie algebra, where diagonal entries are even functions and off diagonal entries are odd functions (of loop parameter lambda). ...

### Real varieties with enough algebraic loops

Let $(X,\sigma)$ be a complex variety with complex conjugation (equivalently, an algebraic variety over $\mathbb R$). We use the notations $X(\mathbb R):=X^\sigma$ for the set of fixed points of $X$ ...

### Central extension of the algebraic loop group

I'm doing some constructions with the universal central extension $\widehat{\Omega G}$ of the loop group $\Omega G$ (here $G$ is a matrix group), where a priori the loops involved are just smooth, but ...

### differentiating positive energy LG reps

Background:Let $G$ be a cscsc¹ Lie group, and let $\widetilde{LG}$ be the universal central extension (center = $S^1$) of $LG:=Map_{C^\infty}(S^1,G)$, with the topology inherited from the $C^\infty$ ...

### Is Pic( G((z)) ) = $\mathbb{Z}$?

There are a fair number of papers by Beauville, Laszlo, Sorger, Kumar and others on the geometry of $LG/L^+G = G((z))/G[[z]]$ where $G$ is a simply connected and simple group over $\mathbb{C}$. In ...
