Abstract

This research project aims to study questions in representation theory of groups using geometric methods. A central role is played by Langlands program which, broadly understood, can be viewed as a grand unified theory of mathematics. One setting for the work is modular representation theory with the aim of understanding irreducible characters. The project also aims to work on combinatorics and geometry in algebraic groups in small characteristics and one goal is to obtain a more uniform geometric understanding across all characteristics. The project also aims to work in the context of real groups and with the Gukov-Witten "fix of the orbit method" via branes. Finally, the project expects to..
