Affine Hecke algebras and quantum symmetric pairs
4:00PM, Mon Sep 26 2016, Math 250
One breakthrough in the theory of quantum groups is the construction of the canonical bases.
For type A, there is a geometric construction for the (idempotented) quantum group together with a canonical basis due to Beilinson, Lusztig and MacPherson via flag varieties and dimension counting. An algebraic approach is also available via Heckle algebras and its combinatorics.
In this talk I will present our work on the generalization to affine type C using the Hecke algebraic approach, in which several new phenomenons have been observed. I will also talk about the related quantum symmetric pairs.
This is a joint work with Z.~Fan, Y.~Li, L.~Luo, and W.~Wang.
