Geometry and regular functions of Kac-Moody symmetric spaces

Speaker: Guido Pezzini (Rom)
Host: Knop
Room: 04.363

Symmetric spaces play a central role in the theory of reductive groups; their geometric and combinatorial properties have several applications, ranging from representation theory to enumerative geometry. In the talk we will report on a research project, joint with Bart Van Steirteghem, aimed at studying symmetric spaces for Kac-Moody groups, which are infinite-dimensional generalizations of reductive groups.
