Geometric Langlands Duality and Real Groups

David Ben-Zvi (U Texas, Austin)

Abstract: I will describe joint work with David Nadler (Northwestern) in which we apply ideas from the geometric Langlands program to describe the representations of real Lie groups (Harish-Chandra modules) as (complexes of equivariant) coherent sheaves on a finite-dimensional algebraic variety (a Steinberg-type variety for the Langlands dual group). The talk will not presume familiarity with geometric Langlands or Harish-Chandra modules.

3:00 pm in 343 Altgeld Hall,Wednesday, March 15, 2006

Supersymmetry and Simple Supersymmetric Actions

Josh Guffin (UIUC Physics)

Abstract: We will consider our first supersymmetric theory, the superparticle.

Hyperbolic geometry and topology

Christopher Leininger (Department of Mathematics, UIUC)
