Frobenius Splittings and B-Modules

Publisher: Springer
Number of pages: 112

The course given by the author at the Tata Institute in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations; while Demazure studied the representations by means of a particular resolution of singularities of Schubert varieties, the method of Mathieu involves sheaf cohomology and 'Frobenius splittings' on a Demazure resolution in finite characteristic p.

Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics. Group captures the symmetry in a very efficient manner. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.
