Every year


This course presents geometric constructions of irreducible representations of semi-simple Lie Algebras and their Weyl groups by means of Springer theory.



By the end of the course, the student must be able to understand basic concepts in geometric representation theory and solve concrete problems about representations of semi-simple algebraic groups.
