Counting points of parabolic Springer fibers

Let $G$ be a reductive group over an (algebraically closed ) field. To each parabolic subgroup $P \subseteq G$ and $x \in G$ we can consider two types of partial Springer fibers associated to it : $$1)...

Reference for character sheaves over $\mathrm{GL}_n(q)$

$\DeclareMathOperator\GL{GL}\DeclareMathOperator\SO{SO}$I know a little bit about complex representation theory of finite reductive groups as $\GL_n(q),\SO_n(q)$ etc via Deligne-Lusztig induction and ...

A Lie-theoretic question regarding $B\ltimes \mathfrak{g}/\mathfrak{b}$

I am stuck on a seeming elementary Lie-theoretic question arising from a study of components of affine Springer fibers. Will be very grateful if somebody would like to share some insight, or ...

Geometric meaning of inducing a representation from a parabolic subgroup of a Weyl group

What is the geometric meaning of inducing a representation from a parabolic subgroup of a Weyl group? Could Springer theory of Weyl group representations be used to obtain such a geometric meaning?

Two-sided cells, special nilpotent orbits and special representations

Let $\mathfrak{g}$ be a complex semisimple Lie algebra. This question concerns three classical objects of representation theory: the two-sided Kazhdan-Lusztig cells of the Weyl group $W$ of $\mathfrak{...

Are there cases in which the Weyl group _does_ act on the flag variety/springer fiber?

In nearly every reference on the classical springer correspondence (for example Chriss/Ginzburg's book on Complex Geometry) it is stated that the action of the Weyl Group on the homology of the ...

Relations between double coinvariants and affine Springer fibers

Diagonal coinvariants have an interpretation from https://arxiv.org/abs/math/0201148 in terms of the Hilbert scheme. There are two recent papers https://arxiv.org/pdf/1801.09033.pdf and https://arxiv....

Intersection of components in Springer fibre of type A

From the standard results on Springer fibers of type A, we know that given a Springer fiber, say $\mathcal{B}_\lambda,$ its irreducible components are all equidimensional and parametrized by standard ...

Homeomorphisms of Springer fibers

Let $V$ be a complex $n$-dimensional vector space and denote by ${\cal F}$ its space of complete flags. Let $g \in Gl(V)$ be unipotent and consider the Springer fiber ${\cal F}_g$ of its fixed points ...

Computing affine Springer fibers

I'm having some trouble computing affine Springer fibers, even in simple cases. For example, consider the group $G=SL_2$ over $\mathbb{C}$ and let $\mathcal{K}=\mathbb{C}((z))$ and $\mathcal{O}=\...

How should I think about the Grothendieck-Springer alteration?

Given a simple complex Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$, recall the Springer resolution of its nilpotent cone $\widetilde{\mathcal{N}}\to \mathcal{N}$. Several times I have seen someone explaining Springer ...

Families of Hessenberg varieties for $GL_n$

In short, the question is What do we know about the sheaf $\pi_*\underline{\bar{\mathbb{Q}}_{\ell}}$ given by the family of (very original, see below) Hessenberg varieties for $GL_n$? As a sum of ...

Hitchin fibration and Springer resolution

Let C be a curve and let us assume $G=GL_N$ and $\mathfrak{g}=\mathfrak{gl}_N$ for simplicity. The moduli space $\mathcal{M}_H(C,G)$ of $G$-Higgs bundles admits the Hitchin fibration $\pi: \mathcal{M}...

Springer fibers and Weyl group

Let $\pi:\tilde{\mathfrak{g}}\rightarrow\mathfrak{g}$ the Grothendieck-Springer resolution of a semisimple Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$, over $\mathbb{C}$. We know it's a small map, and that $\pi_{*}\...

Centralizer action on components of Springer fibers

Let $G$ be a complex adjoint group. Let $u\in G$ be unipotent. The group $A(u):=\pi_0(Z_G(u))$ acts on the set of components of the Springer fiber $\mathcal{B}_u$, the variety of Borel subgroups that ...

$G$-orbits in Springer resolution (or, stabilizer actions on Springer fibers)

This may be an elementary question, but I'm having trouble coming up with an answer: Let $\tilde{N} = T^*(G/B)$ be the Springer resolution of the nilpotent cone. Does it have finitely many $G$-orbits?...

Can we count the number of simple modules for a reduced enveloping algebra?

Let $G$ be a reductive algebraic group over a field of positive characteristic $p$, which I'll assume to be very good for $G$. Then the Lie algebra $\mathfrak{g}$ is restricted and each simple $\...

Computing Springer action on the homology of affine Springer fibers

Lusztig defined (in Sec. 5, also Sage) a Springer action of the affine Weyl group on the homology of affine Springer fibers (Iwahori one, i.e. in an affine flag variety). In the regular semisimple ...

Is it possible to describe the action of the Weyl group on the cohomology of the fibers of the Grothendieck-Springer resolution?

I am confused about the following: can one describe the action of the Weyl group on the cohomology of each fiber of the Grothendieck-Springer resolution? I only need the case of ${\mathfrak sl}_n$. ...

What's a good example/reference for cohomology classes on Springer fibers that aren't restricted from the flag variety

As usual, by Springer fiber, I mean the fixed points $X^u$ of a unipotent element $u$ of the group $G$ on the flag variety $X=G/B$. It's a lovely theorem that when $G=SL_n$, the induced map on ...
