DESCRIPTION:Title: Circle actions\, coherent Springer theory and classical Springer t
heory\nby Harrison Chen (Academia Sinica) as part of Algebra and Geome
try Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture held in Room 5564.\n\nAbstract\nCoherent Sp
ringer theory is related to the representation theory of p-adic groups\, a
nd involves the study of certain coherent sheaves on moduli stacks of Lang
lands parameters\, whose unipotent part is the derived loop space of the e
quivariant nilpotent cone. On the other hand\, classical Springer theory
is related to the representation of finite groups of Lie type\, and involv
es the study of certain constructible sheaves on the equivariant nilpotent
cone itself. Passing between the two involves equivariant localization\,
imposition of circle equivariance\, and a Koszul duality. In the first p
art of this talk\, we will give a gentle introduction to circle actions wi
th many examples. In the second part\, we will describe how this provides
the mechanism for passing between coherent and constructible sheaves.\n

nLecture held in 4621.\n\nAbstract\nMany varieties in Lie theory--partial
flag varieties\, Schubert varieties\, moduli of local systems on surfaces-
-admit cluster structures\, which give a combinatorial way of encoding qua
ntum deformations of these varieties. Braid varieties give a unifying fram
ework for constructing these cluster structures. I will start by defining
braid varieties and give some motivations coming from knot homology and mi
rror symmetry. Then I will introduce the main tool\, Legendrian weaves\, w
hich allow us to construct clusters in a concrete and diagrammatic way. Th
e diagrams will be familiar to anyone who has seen Soergel calculus. This

n (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) as part of Algebra and Geo

tions for GL(n) have appeared in a number of works related to automorphic
representation theory. Their importance has recently been highlighted by A
rthur. It turns out that for function fields\, the local factors of these
L-functions have long been studied in algebraic geometry\, as Hilbert zeta
functions of curve singularities. Drawing inspiration from the Oblomkov-R
asmussen-Shende conjecture\, I will formulate a closely related conjecture
equating the local factors with what are essentially the knot superpolyno
mials introduced by Cherednik-Danilenko\, Dunfield-Gukov-Rasmussen\, and o
thers. This applies in the tamely ramified case over any non-archimedean l
ocal field\, even when there is no knot in the picture. I will then explai
n recent progress towards this conjecture.\n

f two Langlands dual reductive groups. We will see that this leads to a ne

s us to extend Grothendieck’s theory of projectivizations and Grassmanni
ans of sheaves to the cases of complexes. This derived extension is very u
seful for constructing and studying moduli spaces\, especially when the sp
aces are singular and difficult to analyze in the classical framework. We
will discuss the constructions of derived projectivizations and Grassmanni
ans as well as their properties\, with a focus on their applications to Ab
el maps for singular curves and Hecke correspondences for smooth surfaces.

DESCRIPTION:Title: A proof of $P=W$ conjecture\nby Sasha Minets (The University
of Edinburgh) as part of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture h
eld in 5564.\n\nAbstract\nLet $C$ be a smooth projective curve. The non-ab
elian Hodge theory of Simpson is a diffeomorphism between the character va
riety $M_B$ of $C$ and the moduli of (semi)stable Higgs bundles $M_D$ on $
C$. Since this diffeomorphism is not algebraic\, it induces an isomorphism
of cohomology rings\, but does not preserve finer information\, such as t
he weight filtration. Based on computations in small rank\, de Cataldo-Hau
sel-Migliorini conjectured that the weight filtration on $H^*(M_B)$ gets s
ent to the perverse filtration on $H^*(M_D)$\, associated to the Hitchin m
ap. In this talk\, I will explain a recent proof of this conjecture\, whic
h crucially uses the action of Hecke correspondences on $H^*(M_D)$. Based
on joint work with T. Hausel\, A. Mellit\, O. Schiffmann.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Chiral homology\, the Zhu algebra\, and Rogers-Ramanujan\nby
Jethro van Ekeren (Instituto de Matemática Pura e Aplicada (IMPA)) as par
t of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture held in Room 5506.\n\
nAbstract\nGraded dimensions of rational vertex algebras are modular funct
ions. The proof of this celebrated theorem by Y. Zhu centres on geometric
objects attached to elliptic curves known as conformal blocks\, and their
behaviour in the limit as the underlying curve becomes singular. In this l
imit\, roughly speaking\, conformal blocks pass to the degree zero Hochsch
ild homology of Zhu's associative algebra. On the other hand\, conformal b
locks have been interpreted by Beilinson and Drinfeld as the degree zero c
omponent of a theory of chiral homology. It is therefore natural to wonder
if the relationship extends to higher homological degrees. We are indeed
able to extend this story to homological degree 1 for classically free ver
tex algebras\, and in the process we discover relations with objects of nu
mber theory such as the Rogers-Ramanujan identity and its generalisations.
This is joint work with R. Heluani and G. Andrews.\n

D-modules to mixed Hodge modules. When it applies\, this endows everythin
g in sight with a canonical filtration\, the Hodge filtration\, which we p
rove has some extremely nice properties\, such as cohomology vanishing and
global generation. In the context of real groups\, we also prove that the

DESCRIPTION:Title: Smooth and proper algebras via stable $(\\infty\,2)$-categories\nby Timothy Campion (Johns Hopkins University) as part of Algebra and G

rothendieck\, the notion of an abelian 1-category has provided a natural s
etting to do algebra which encompasses both categories of modules and cate
gories of sheaves. Since Lurie\, the notion of a stable $(\\infty\,1)$-cat
egory has provided a similar setting to do derived algebra\, encompassing
derived categories of modules and sheaves\, and improving upon the notion
of a triangulated category due to Verdier.\n\nIn this talk\, we discuss a
few possible notions of stable $(\\infty\,2)$-category\, motivated by enri
ched category theory. Examples include the $(\\infty\,2)$-category of dg c
ategories\, the $(\\infty\,2)$-category of stable $(\\infty\,1)$-categorie
s\, and various $(\\infty\,2)$-categories of stacks of stable $(\\infty\,1
)$-categories. The intention is to provide a natural home for the study of
such $(\\infty\,2)$-categories\, which are of interest in areas such as t
he Geometric Langlands program\, secondary algebraic K-theory\, and derive
d algebraic geometry.\n\nWe discuss work in progress on showing that our n
otions of stable $(\\infty\,2)$-category are equivalent. As an application
\, we show for example that every smooth and proper algebra over a regular
commutative Noetherian ring k may be constructed from $k$ by iterating tw
o simple operations: glueing along a perfect bimodule\, and 2-idempotent s
plitting.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Semi-orthogonal decomposition of conjugation equivariant sheaves
on the loop group\nby Aron Heleodoro (Hong Kong University) as part of
Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture held in Room 5560.\n\nAbs
tract\nLet $k$ be an algebraically closed field and $L=k((t))$\, for $G$ a
connected reductive algebraic group consider $\\breve G:= G(L)$. We estab
lish a semi-orthogonal decomposition indexed by Newton strata of $D(\\frac
{\\breve G}{\\breve G})$\, the DG category of $\\breve G$-equivariant cons
tructible etale sheaves on $\\breve G$. In this talk I will explain (1) ho
w to consider (ind-)constructible etale sheaves on such infinite-dimension
al spaces\, (2) what notion of semi-orthogonal decomposition we consider\,
(3) the definiton of Newton strata and the geometric input about them we
need for the theory\, and (4) how this category relates to the affine Heck
e category. This is joint work with Xuhua He.\n

group G\, defined over a finite field\, and the (principal series) represe
ntations of the corresponding finite group of Lie type. I will discuss a c

cz (Institute of Science and Technology Austria) as part of Algebra and Ge
ometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture held in Room 5560.\n\nAbstract\nExtendin
g the classical Poincare-Hopf theorem\, the work of Akyildiz\, Carrell\, L
iebermann\, Sommese shows how to recover the cohomology ring of a smooth p
rojective variety from isolated zeros of a vector field. Thirty years late
r\, Brion and Carrell showed how to find the spectrum of the torus-equivar
iant cohomology as a geometrically defined scheme\, provided that the Bore
l of SL_2 acts with a single fixed point of the regular unipotent. In a jo
int work with Tamas Hausel we demonstrate how to see the spectrum of G-equ
ivariant cohomology\, if G is a linear group acting with similar assumptio
ns. This condition covers many interesting cases\, including flag varietie
s and Bott–Samelson resolutions. I will present this work and also show
how to see the equivariant cohomology rings of spherical varieties as ring
s of functions on non-affine schemes. Besides\, there are a lot of new dir
ections and open questions I would like to advertise. This in particular c
oncerns general\, potentially singular varieties\, as well as other equiva
riant cohomology theories.\n

o Gao (Peking University) as part of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\
n\nLecture held in 3598.\n\nAbstract\nThe quantum Bruhat graph is introduc
ed by Brenti-Fomin-Postnikov to study structure constants of the quantum c
ohomology ring of the flag variety\, with very rich combinatorial structur
es. In this talk\, we provide an explicit formula for the minimal degree a
ppearing in the quantum product of any two Schubert classes. Building upon
that\, we obtain an Ehresmann-like criterion for the tilted Bruhat order
studied by Brenti-Fomin-Postnikov. These results motivate the definition o
f tilted Richardson varieties\, which provide geometrical interpretations
of tilted Bruhat orders. Tilted Richardson varieties are indexed by pairs
of permutations and generalize Richardson varieties in the flag variety. M
oreover\, they equal the two-pointed curve neighborhoods of opposite Schub
ert varieties studied by Buch-Chaput-Mihalcea-Perrin. We establish several
geometrical properties of tilted Richardson varieties including a Deodhar
-like decomposition. This is a joint work with Jiyang Gao and Shiliang Gao

DESCRIPTION:Title: Okounkov's conjecture via BPS Lie algebras\nby Ben Davison (U
niversity of Edinburgh) as part of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\
nLecture held in 4503.\n\nAbstract\nGiven an arbitrary finite quiver Q\, M
aulik and Okounkov defined a new Yangian-style quantum group. It is built
via their construction of R matrices on the cohomology of Nakajima quiver
varieties\, which in turn is constructed via their construction of stable
envelopes. Just as in the case of ordinary Yangians\, there is a Lie algeb
ra g_Q inside their new algebra\, and the Yangian is a deformation of the
current algebra of this Lie algebra.\n\nOutside of extended ADE type\, num
erous basic features of g_Q have remained mysterious since the outset of t
he subject\, for example\, the dimensions of the graded pieces. A conjectu
re of Okounkov predicts that these dimensions are given by the coefficient
s of Kac's polynomials\, which count isomorphism classes of absolutely ind
ecomposable Q-representations over finite fields. I will present a recent
result with Tommaso Botta: we prove that the Maulik-Okounkov Lie algebra g
_Q is isomorphic to a certain BPS Lie algebra constructed in my previous w
ork with Sven Meinhardt. This implies Okounkov's conjecture\, as well as
essentially determining g_Q\, thanks to recent joint work of myself with H
ennecart and Schlegel Mejia.\n

heaf-theoretic Virasoro constraints opens many doors for future research.
In particular\, one may consider its analog for quivers. After phrasing a
universal approach to Virasoro constraints for moduli of quiver-representa
tions\, I will sketch their proof for any finite quiver with relations\, w
ith frozen vertices\, but without cycles. I will use partial flag varietie
s which are a special case of moduli of framed representations as a guidin
g example throughout. Using derived equivalences to quivers with relation
s\, I give self-contained proofs of Virasoro constraints for all Gieseker
semistable sheaves on $S = \\mathbb{P}^2\,\\mathbb{P}^1 \\times \\mathbb{
P}^1$\, and $\\mathrm{Bl}_\\mathrm{pt}\\mathbb{P}^2$. Combined with an exi
sting universality argument for Virasoro constraints on Hilbert schemes of
points of surface\, this leads to a proof for any $S$ which is independen

ures. For this purpose\, I introduce a new structure into the picture - fo
rmal families of vertex algebras. Apart from being a natural extension of
the vertex algebras introduced by Joyce\, they allow to wall-cross with in
sertions instead of the plain virtual fundamental classes. Many fundament
al hurdles needed to be overcome to prove wall-crossing in this setting. T
hey included constructing Calabi-Yau four obstruction theories on (enhance
d) master spaces and showing that the invariants counting semistable torsi

DESCRIPTION:Title: Symmetric polynomials and interpolation polynomials\nby Hong
Chen (Rutgers University) as part of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\
n\nLecture held in 4504.\n\nAbstract\nSymmetric polynomials---for example\
, Schur\, Jack\, and Macdonald polynomials---are classical objects in the
study of algebra\, representation theory\, and combinatorics. Interpolatio
n polynomials are certain inhomogeneous versions of Jack and Macdonald pol
ynomials. In this talk\, after reviewing some basics on symmetric polynomi
als\, I will introduce interpolation polynomials and discuss our recent wo
rk on their properties. As an application\, I will give a characterization
of the containment partial order in terms of Schur positivity or Jack pos
itivity. This result parallels the works of Cuttler--Greene--Skandera\, Sr
a\, and Khare--Tao\, which characterize two other partial orders in terms
of Schur positivity. This work is joint with Siddhartha Sahi.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Syzygies of determinantal thickenings and gl(m|n) representations
\nby Amy Huang (Texas A&M University) as part of Algebra and Geometry
Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLecture held in Room 2463 (Lift 25/26).\n\nAbstract\nTh
e coordinate ring $S = \\mathbb{C}[x_{i\,j}]$ of space of $m \\times n$ ma
trices carries an action of the group $\\mathrm{GL}_m \\times \\mathrm{GL}
_n$ via row and column operations on the matrix entries. If we consider an
y $\\mathrm{GL}_m \\times \\mathrm{GL}_n$-invariant ideal $I$ in $S$\, the
syzygy modules $\\mathrm{Tor}_i(I\,\\mathbb{C})$ will carry a natural act
ion of $\\mathrm{GL}_m \\times \\mathrm{GL}_n$. Via BGG correspondence\, t
hey also carry an action of $\\bigwedge^{\\bullet} (\\mathbb{C}^m \\otimes
\\mathbb{C}^n)$. It is a result by Raicu and Weyman that we can combine t
hese actions together and make them modules over the general linear Lie su
peralgebra $\\mathfrak{gl}(m|n)$. We will explain how this works and how i
t enables us to compute all Betti numbers of any $\\mathrm{GL}_m \\times \
\mathrm{GL}_n$-invariant ideal $I$.\n

is to give a few examples of moduli spaces originated from relative Donald
son-Thomas theory in dimension 4. Attempts in finding numerical invariants
via these moduli spaces lead to a question of functoriality of the cohomo
logy or K-theory of these moduli spaces. Invariants arising from the funct
oriality in examples will be given. The original parts of the talk are bas
ed on a project joint with Cao\, and partially with Zhou.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Endoscopy for affine Hecke category\nby Yau Wing Li (The Univ
ersity of Melbourne) as part of Algebra and Geometry Seminar @ HKUST\n\nLe
cture held in 5506.\n\nAbstract\nAffine Hecke categories are categorificat
ions of Iwahori-Hecke algebras\, which are essential in the classification
of irreducible representations of loop group LG with Iwahori-fixed vector
s. The affine Hecke category has a monodromic counterpart\, which contains
sheaves with prescribed monodromy under the left and right actions of the
maximal torus. We show that the neutral block of this monoidal category i
s equivalent to the neutral block of the affine Hecke category (with trivi
al torus monodromy) for the endoscopic group H. It is consistent with the
Langlands functoriality conjecture.\n
