Geometric Representation Theory Seminar: Introduction to flag varieties
Seminar | September 3 | 12:30-2 p.m. | 732 Evans Hall
David Nadler, Berkeley
This will be the first meeting of an ongoing learning seminar (Tuesdays 12:30-2pm in 732 Evans) devoted to flag varieties "from the beginning". We will discuss many perspectives – coming from representation theory, algebraic geometry, topology, combinatorics,... – with an ongoing focus on relative positions of pairs of flags and more complicated configurations.
