*Cycles in the Kempf-Ness set*

**Abstract**:

We consider projections of adjoint orbits of a compact connected Lie group K to Lie algebra of a closed connected subgroup L. Such a projection is a momentum map for the subgroup action, with respect to the canonical Kähler structure on an adjoint orbit. We are interested in explicit constructions of points in the Kempf-Ness set.
We study the compatibility of the projection with Cartan decompositions of K and L. We employ results of Heinzner-Schwarz-Stötzel and iterations of Cartan decompositions to construct an explicit complex homogeneous subvariety contained in the Kempf-Ness set of an orbit, and transversal to the L-orbits in the Kempf-Ness set. This subvariety is an iterated cycle of a sequence of split real forms. The procedure is applicable to a set of orbits, determined by the intrinsic structure of K, taking into account only an integral invariant of the isomorphism type of L. This integral invariant, for a compact connected group L, is defined as the length m of a sequence of subgroups L=L(0)>L(1)>...>L(m)>L(m+1)=1, such that L(j+1) is a symmetric subgroup of L(j) which is a maximal compact subgroup of a split real form of the complexification of L(j).
The construction has several consequences in invariant theory and branching laws for representations.

*Lag domains and variation of Hodge structure, I and II*

**Abstract**:

A flag manifold is a projective rational variety $Z$ which is homogeneous with
respect to a complex semisimple Lie group $G$. In most cases such manifolds parameterize
flags of vector subspaces of a complex vector space which comes equipped with a
geometric structure defined by a bilinear form. The flags are then required satisfy additional conditions
related to this geometric structure. If real conditions are imposed, e.g., those coming
from a (mixed signature) Hermitian form, the symmetry group is restricted to a real form
$G_0$ of $G$ and the relevant flag-parameter space is an open $G_0$-orbit, a so-called
flag domain, $D$ in $Z$. Such conditions arise for flags in the Hodge theory of a compact
Kähler manifold. Families of such manifolds therefore give rise to distinguished subvarieties
of certain flag domains. The goal of these lectures is to explain the basic foundational results
in this subject, whenever possible in contexts of interesting examples.

*LVM-Mannigfaltigkeiten: eine Klasse von kompakten, komplexen, nicht Kähler Mannigfaltigkeiten*.

**Abstract**:

In meinem Vortrag werde ich Meerssemans Konstruktion einer Klasse von kompakten, komplexen, nicht Kähler Mannigfaltigkeiten vorstellen.

Wir beginnen mit einer m-dimensionalen singulären holomorphen Blätterung F von $\mathbb{C}^n$ (mit n>2m), welche von m kommutierenden holomorphen linearen Vektorfeldern in $\mathbb{C}^n$ erzeugt wird. Wenn die Blätterung F die so genannten Siegel und schwache Hyperbolizität Bedingungen erfüllt, dann enthält F Siegel Blätter und der Blattraum, eingeschränkt auf alle Siegel Blätter, ist eine glatte Mannigfaltigkeit M. Da M transversal zu F ist, können wir eine holomorphe Struktur auf M mit Hilfe von F induzieren. Diese Konstruktion kann projektiviert werden und man erhält eine komplexe Mannigfaltigkeit N, welche in $\mathbb{C}P^(n-1)$ eingebettet ist.

Die Mannigfaltigkeit N erweist sich als nicht Kähler für n>2m+1.

*Almost homogeneous varieties of Albanese codimension one.*

**Abstract**:

A variety is said to be almost homogeneous if it has a dense orbit under the action of an algebraic group. Almost homogeneous varieties are very symmetric objects, with a rich geometry, and have been much studied for the past fifty years; a famous class of them consists of toric varieties, when the acting group is a torus. In this talk, we are interested in varieties, defined over an arbitrary field, satisfying a geometric condition: having Albanese codimension 1.
A first part will be dedicated to some general results on the Albanese variety Alb(X) of a variety X. The Albanese codimension is defined to be dim X - dim Alb(X) and I will explain why this is an interesting geometric invariant when studying almost homogeneous varieties.
In a second part, I will present the classification of almost homogeneous varieties of Albanese codimension 1 and their equivariant compactifications.
If there is enough time, I will comment on the smoothness of the automorphism group of the equivariant compactifications.

*The restricted Weyl group action on the set of orbits of a minimal
parabolic subgroup for k-spherical varieties.*

**Abstract**:

For a spherical variety of a reductive group G over
algebraically closed field (i.e. for such variety that a Borel
subgroup B has an open orbit) F.Knop in 95 has introduced an action of
the Weyl group on the set of B-orbits. This action is closely related
with an action of the so called little Weyl group.
In my talk I shall speak about generalizations of these results
to algebraically non-closed fields obtained with F.Knop. Let k be an
algebraically non-closed field and X be a spherical k-variety with
respect to the action of a reductive group G i.e. such that the
minimal parabolic subgroup P acts with an open orbit. Under these
assumptions the set of the P-orbits defined over k with non-empty set
of k-points is finite and we construct an action of a restricted Weyl
group on the set of orbits of maximal rank by relating it with a
geometry of cotangent bundle. For the case of a real field we prove
the existence of such action for the whole set of P-orbits containing
R-points.

*Symplectic capacities and Cayley graphs*

**Abstract**:

The Gromov non-squeezing theorem in symplectic geometry states that
is not possible to embed symplectically a ball into a cylinder of smaller
radius, although this can be done with a volume preserving embedding. Hence, the
biggest radius of a ball that can be symplectically embedded into a symplectic
manifold can be used as a way to measure the "symplectic size'' of the manifold.
We call the square of this radius times the number π the Gromov width of the
symplectic manifold. The Gromov width as a symplectic invariant is extended
through the notion of "Symplectic Capacity". In this talk I will explain how to
estimate bounds for symplectic capacities of homogeneous spaces of compact Lie
groups in terms of the combinatorics of Cayley graphs associated to them.

I will describe a criterion for existence of invariants of certain degrees. For irreducible representations, I will also derive a lower bound on the degrees of invariants, based on the geometry of the unique closed projective $G$-orbit, more specifically - its secant varieties.

*Invariant subalgebras in a skew-group ring and their modules *

**Abstract**:

I. Gelfand and M. Zeitlin constructed a basis in finite dimensional gln(C)-modules together with explicit formulas for gln(C)-action. These formulas for gln(C)-action are called classical Gelfand-Zeitlin formulas. It was noticed by I. Gelfand and M. Graev that the classical Gelfand-Zeitlin formulas may be used to obtain a family of infinite dimensional gln(C)-modules. More general theory of the so-called Gelfand-Zetlin modules is developed by Yu. Drozd, S. Ovsienko and V. Futorny.
The main difficulty here was to construct and classify so-called singular Gelfand-Zeitlin modules. That is Gelfand-Zeitlin modules where the (rational) coefficients of the classical Gelfand-Zeitlin formulas have potential singularities. A significant step in this direction was done in 2017-2018 by L. Ramirez, P. Zadunaisky and by N. Early, V. Mazorchuk, E.V. We will discuss our most recent paper with V. Mazorchuk that is devoted to a generalization of this construction to any invariant subalgebras in a skew-group ring.

*Moving cycles, ample normal bundles and pseudoconcave neighborhoods*

**Abstract**:

For the talk a cycle is just a compact complex submanifold $C$ of a complex manifold $Z$.
In the first part of the talk we will sketch some classical results which relate the three topics in the title. Here, moving $C$ means moving it in a holomorphically parameterized family $C_t$ in $Z$. This should in principle be related to the ampleness of the normal bundle of $C$, and this ampleness, when expressed in terms curvature, should be related to $C$ possessing a neighborhood basis with a certain degree of pseudoconcavity.
The second part of the talk will be devoted to the special case where $(G,K)$ is a symmetric
pair, $Z$ is a $G$-flag manifold and $C$ is a closed $K$-orbit in $Z$. In particular, we will outline certain recent results (see arXiv 1711.09333 and 1807.07311).

*A version of Matsuki duality for generalized flags*.

**Abstract**:

An (infinite-dimensional) ind-group is the direct limit of a chain of (complex, finite dimensional) algebraic groups. We consider a classical ind-group G, obtained as the limit of a chain of classical groups of a given type. Dimitrov and Penkov introduced a flag model ("generalized flags") for classifying the Borel subgroups of G. Contrary to the finite-dimensional case, all Borel subgroups of G are not conjugate. This yields several ind-varieties of generalized flags of the form G/B.
In the finite-dimensional case, Matsuki duality relates two families of orbits on a flag variety: orbits of a symmetric subgroup and orbits of the corresponding real form.
In this talk, we show that Matsuki duality extends to the case of ind-varieties of the form G/B.

*Schottky group action on complex manifolds, Teil 1 und 2*.

**Abstract**:

In this talk we consider Schottky group actions on complex manifolds. As an abstract group a Schottky group is isomorphic to a non-abelian free group F, and a Schottky group action on the complex manifold X yields an invariant connected open subset U of X on which the action of F is free and properly discontinuous. Our motivation for the study of Schottky group actions comes from the fact that the quotient manifolds U/F have interesting properties.

In the main case when the initial complex manifold is homogeneous-rational of dimension grater than one, i.e. a flag manifold, the quotients are non-Kähler compact complex manifolds. We investigate their analytic and geometric invariants such as the Kodaira and algebraic dimension, the Picard group and the deformation theory, thus extending results due to Lárusson and to Seade-Verjovsky. We recover examples of equivariant compactifications of Schottky quotients of SL(2,C). This is a joint work with Christian Miebach (Calais).

*On complexity of algebraic varieties over algebraically non-closed fields*.

**Abstract**:

In 1986 E.B.Vinberg introduced the notion of complexity for the action
of a reductive group G on an algebraic variety over an algebraically
closed field, which is equal to codimension of a generic orbit of a
Borel subgroup in the algebraic variety. Vinberg has proved that the complexity
does not increase after passing to the B-invariant subset of algebraic
variety. In particular, this means that in a spherical variety, i.e.
the variety with an open B-orbit, there is only a finite number of B-orbits.

In my talk I shall speak about generalization of this result to algebraic non-closed
fields which is a joint work with F. Knop.

dually the logarithmic 1-forms. If X is smooth and D is snc, then the
logarithmic tangent sheaf is locally free. More generally, this holds
true if X is toric. In the talk, I will explain a theorem about the
local converse of this statement, i.e. in which cases local freeness of

*The adapted hyper-Kähler structure on the tangent bundle
of a Hermitian symmetric space.*

**Abstract**:

Let (I_0, w_0) denote the invariant Kähler structure of a compact Hermitian symmetric
space X = G/K. The holomorphic cotangent bundle T*X (a tubular neighbourhood
of the zero section, in the non-compact case) carries a unique G-invariant hyper-Kähler
structure compatible with (I_0, w_0) and the canonical holomorphic symplectic form of T*X.
Such a structure has been investigated, among others, by Eguchi-Hanson, Calabi, Biquard,
Gauduchon, Feix, Kaledin.

On the other hand, the tangent bundle TX is isomorphic to T*X and carries a canonical
complex structure J_ad, the so called adapted complex structure, introduced by Lempert-Szöke
and Guillemin-Stenzel in 1991.

One can show that TX (the crown domain, in the non-compact case) admits a unique
G-invariant hyper-Kähler structure compatible with (I_0, w_0) and J_ad. The two hyper-Kähler
structures are related by a G-equivariant fiber preserving diffeomorphism of TX which was
introduced by Dancer and Szöke.

The aim of the talk is to introduce the adapted hyper-Kähler structure and explain an
advantage of such a point of view. Namely, it is possible to obtain an explicit realization
of all the quantities involved by means of Lie theoretical tools and moment map techniques.

This is part of a joint project with Laura Geatti.

G-invariant Szego kernel asymptotics and CR reduction

**Abstract** :

* Let X be a compact connected orientable CR manifold with non-degenerate Levi curvature.
Assume that X admits a connected compact Lie group action G. Under certain natural assumptions about the group action G, we show that the G-invariant Szego kernel for (0,q) forms is a complex Fourier integral operator, smoothing away the reduced space Y and there is a precise description of the singularity near Y. We apply our result to the case when X admits a transversal CR circle action and deduce an asymptotic expansion for the m-th Fourier component of the G-invariant Szego kernel for (0,q)-forms as m goes to infinity. As an application, we show that if m large enough, quantization commutes with reduction. This is a joint work with Rung-Tzung Huang.*

Some geometric methods to get results on coefficients from representation theory.

**Abstract** :

* The branching coefficients appear in representation theory when one looks at the following situation: let G and H be two complex reductive groups such that H is a subgroup of G, and consider an irreducible representation of G. Then this is also a representation of H and as such it decomposes into a direct sum of irreducible ones. The multiplicities of the irreducible representations of H in this decomposition are called the branching coefficients. They have a geometric interpretation when the groups G and H are connected: they correspond to dimensions of spaces of invariant sections of line bundles over flag varieties.
This talk will then be mainly focused on a specific example of branching coefficients (even if most of the techniques apply to other ones): the Kronecker coefficients, which are indexed by triples of partitions of the same integer. A notion of "stable triple" can then be defined relatively to these coefficients, and we will see that their geometric interpretation allows to obtain a new proof of a characterisation of stability proven by S. Sam and A. Snowden. Finally we will discuss about some ways to produce such stable triples.*

Cayley groups

**Abstract**:

*I will start the talk with the classical "Cayley transform" for the special orthogonal group SO(n) defined by Arthur Cayley in 1846. A connected linear algebraic group G over the field of complex numbers C is called a *Cayley group* if it admits a *Cayley map*, that is, a G-equivariant birational isomorphism between the group variety G and its Lie algebra Lie(G). For example, SO(n) is a Cayley group. A linear algebraic group G is called *stably Cayley* if G x S is Cayley for some C-torus S. I will consider semisimple algebraic groups, in particular, simple algebraic groups. I will describe classification of Cayley simple groups and of stably Cayley semisimple groups.

Rings of differential operators on some wonderful varieties of small rank

**Abstract**:

*Let $X$ be a complex smooth projective algebraic variety. The algebra of global differential operators $D_X$ is rather badly understood, except in the case of curves, toric varieties, and flag varieties. In this talk, we will investigate these algebras in the case of some wonderful varieties of small rank.
More precisely, if $X$ is a wonderful $G$-variety, two questions naturally arise, namely the study of the infinitesimal action of the Lie algebra of $G$, and when ${\cal L}$ is an invertible sheaf on $X$, the study of the algebra of twisted global differential operators $D_{X,{\cal L}}$ on the cohomology groups $H^i(X,{\cal L})$. We will give an answer to these questions in some particular cases, keeping in mind that wonderful varieties can be seen as generalizations of flag varieties.*
