Algebraic Geometry: "Hodge theory of classifying spaces"

Dr. Burt Totaro, UCLA

Category: Seminar

Description: The goal of this talk is to create a correspondence between the representation theory of algebraic groups and the topology of Lie groups. The idea is to study the Hodge theory of the classifying space of a reductive group over a field of characteristic p, the case of characteristic 0 being well known. The approach yields new calculations in representation theory, motivated by topology.
