DESCRIPTION:Title: Root of unity quantum cluster algebras: discriminants\
, Cayley-Hamilton algebras\, and Poisson orders\nby Milen Yakimov (Nor
theastern University) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra Seminar\
n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\nWe wil
l describe a theory of root of unity quantum cluster algebras\, which incl
udes various families of algebras from Lie theory and topology. All such a
lgebras will be shown to be maximal orders in central simple algebras. Ins
ide each of them\, we will construct a canonical central subalgebra which
is isomorphic to the underlying cluster algebra. It is a far-reaching gene
ralization of the De Concini-Kac-Procesi central subalgebras that play a f
undamental role in the representation theory of quantum groups at roots of
unity. An explicit formula for the corresponding discriminants will be pr
esented. We will also show that all root of unity quantum cluster algebras
have canonical structures of Cayley-Hamilton algebras (in the sense of Pr
ocesi) and Poisson orders (in the sense of De Concini-Kac-Procesi and Brow
n-Gordon). Their fully Azumaya loci will be shown to contain the underlyin
g cluster A varieties. This is a joint work with Shengnan Huang\, Thang Le

\nby Reimundo Heluani (IMPA) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algeb

so that its space of conformal blocks on the torus is finite dimensional.
This leads to conditions of V related to C_2 cofiniteness: the zero-th Poi
sson homology of Zhu's C_2 algebra R_V is finite dimensional. We analyze a
nalogous conditions so that the higher chiral homology of V on the torus i
s finite dimensional\, this leads to the obvious condition on the Poisson
homology of Zhu's C_2 algebra\, as well as some extra conditions on the fu
ll classical limit of V. This is joint work with J. V. Ekeren.\n\nhttps://

nd nabla positivity.\nby Anton Mellit (University of Vienna) as part o
f MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra Seminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135
in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\nI will talk about the positive part o
f a certain affine Springer fiber studied by Goresky\, Kottwitz\, and MacP
herson\, and a certain interesting open subvariety. The Hilbert series of
their Borel-Moore homology turns out to be related to reproducing kernels
of the Bergeron-Garsia nabla operator. This operator is easy to define in
the basis of modified Macdonald polynomials\, but producing explicit combi
natorial evaluations of this operator is usually difficult and (conjectura
lly) relates to interesting Hilbert series associated to various moduli sp
aces. Our work is motivated by the nabla positivity conjecture of Bergeron
\, Garsia\, Haiman\, and Tesler that predicts that nabla evaluated on a Sc
hur function is sometimes positive\, sometimes negative. We categorify thi
s conjecture and reduce it to a vanishing conjecture for the interesting o
pen variety. It turns out\, each irreducible S_n representation mysterious
ly prefers to live in certain degrees and weights in the cohomology. This
is a joint work with Erik Carlsson.\n

y Yi-Zhi Huang (Rutgers) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra Semin
ar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\nIn
1988\, based on the fundamental conjectures on operator product expansion
and modular invariance\, Moore and Seiberg observed that there should be t
ensor categories with additional structures associated to rational conform
al field theories. Since then\, tensor category structures from conformal
field theories have been constructed\, studied and applied to solve mathem
atical problems. Mathematically\, conformal field theories can be construc
ted and studied using the representation theory of vertex operator algebra
s. In this talk\, I will give a survey on the constructions and studies of
various tensor category structures on module categories for vertex operat

DESCRIPTION:Title: Introduction to the analytic Langlands correspondence
\nby Pavel Etingof (MIT) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra S
eminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\
nI will review an analytic approach to the geometric Langlands corresponde
nce\, following my work with E. Frenkel and D. Kazhdan\, arXiv:1908.09677\
, arXiv:2103.01509\, arXiv:2106.05243. This approach was developed by us i
n the last couple of years and involves ideas from previous and ongoing wo
rks of a number of mathematicians and mathematical physicists -- Kontsevic
h\, Langlands\, Nekrasov\, Teschner\, Gaiotto-Witten and others. One of th
e goals of this approach is to understand single-valued real analytic eige
nfunctions of the quantum Hitchin integrable system. The main method of st
udying these functions is realizing them as the eigenbasis for certain com
pact normal commuting integral operators the Hilbert space of L2 half-dens
ities on the (complex points of) the moduli space $Bun(G\,X)$ of principal
G-bundles on a smooth projective curve X\, possibly with parabolic points
. These operators actually make sense over any local field\, and over non-
archimedian fields are a replacement for the quantum Hitchin system. We co
njecture them to be compact and prove this conjecture in the genus zero ca
se (with parabolic points) for $G=PGL(2)$.\n\nI will first discuss the sim
plest non-trivial example of Hecke operators over local fields\, namely $G
=PGL(2)$ and genus 0 curve with 4 parabolic points. In this case the modul
i space of semistable bundles $Bun(G\,X)^{ss}$ is $P^1$\, and the situatio
n is relatively well understood\; over C it is the theory of single-valued
eigenfunctions of the Lame operator with coupling parameter $-1/2$ (previ
ously studied by Beukers and later in a more functional-analytic sense in
our work with Frenkel and Kazhdan). I will consider the corresponding spec
tral theory and then explain its generalization to $N>4$ points and conjec
turally to higher genus curves.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the spectrum and support of a finite tensor catego
ry\nby Kent Vashaw (LSU) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra S
eminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\
nThe tools of support varieties (initiated by Carlson in 1983) and tensor
triangular geometry (initiated by Balmer in 2005) have played an important
role in the study of monoidal triangulated categories\, with stable categ
ories of finite tensor categories forming one of the principal classes of
examples. The relationship between support varieties and tensor triangular
geometry has been used in many cases to classify the thick ideals of the
category in question\, a fundamental problem. We will discuss work of Buan
-Krause-Solberg and Nakano-V.-Yakimov\, which defined and developed noncom
mutative versions of Balmer's theory\, and will proceed to describe new me
thods for determining the Balmer spectrum and thick ideals of a monoidal t
riangulated category. This is joint work with Daniel Nakano and Milen Yaki

n\n\nAbstract\nThe notion of chiral homology of a chiral algebra was intro

struction of a chiral algebra from a conformal vertex algebra and a smooth
complex curve provides a large supply of interesting examples\, but in ge
neral the chiral homology of these examples seems not to be well understoo
d. Motivated by questions in the representation theory of vertex algebras\
, we study the behaviour of the chiral homology of families of elliptic c
urves degenerating to a nodal curve. After introducing chiral homology in
general\, I will explain how to develop explicit complexes to compute it
in the case of interest\, relate it to the Hochschild homology of the co
rresponding Zhu algebra\, and establish links with identities of Rogers-Ra
manujan type and their generalisations. (Joint work with R. Heluani)\n\nMe

ed by the new dynamics. In a reasonable class of candidate ideals\, there
are typically very few that are invariant for the first equation in the hi
erarchy. Once these ideals are picked the challenge is to prove that the w

oup over a local field k (say of characteristic 0)\, for instance the subg
roup of $Aut(g)$\, g a Kac-Moody algebra over k\, generated by the groups
$(P)SL_2(k)$ belonging to the simple roots\, one can endow it with the fin
est group topology such that the embeddings of the Lie groups $(P)SL_2(k)$
become continuous.\n\nThis turns out to be a Hausdorff group topology\, a
nd actually equal to the group topology that Kac and Peterson suggested fo
r such Kac-Moody groups in the 1980s.\n\nThis topology is always $k_omega$
\, and it is locally compact if and only if the Kac-Moody group actually i
s a finite-dimensional Lie group.\n\nThis topology induces the Lie topolog
y on the Levi factors of parabolics of spherical type\, in the indefinite
cases it provides new examples for Kramer's theory of topological twin bui
ldings (which he developed in 2002 for loop groups)\, and in the Archimedi
an case it is possible to determine their fundamental groups\, actually pr
oviding a structural explanation for the (known by classification) fundame
ntal groups of semisimple split real Lie groups.\n\nMoreover\, in the 2-sp
herical situation these topological groups turn out to satisfy Kazhdan's P
roperty (T)\, and allow Mostow-Margulis-type rigidity results for (S-)arit
hmetic subgroups.\n\nKac-Moody groups also admit symmetric spaces. In the
non-spherical situation\, these symmetric spaces have a causal structure w
ith the two halves of the twin building visible at infinity in the future\
, resp. past directions. One can prove that either time-travel is impossib
le on Kac-Moody symmetric spaces (i.e.\, there are no non-trivial closed c
ausal piecewise geodesic curves) or all points of the Kac-Moody symmetric
space are causally equivalent. It turns out that the question which of the
two cases occurs is equivalent to the question whether (global) Kostant c
onvexity holds for Kac-Moody groups\; it also seems\, by an observation th
at Hartnick and Damour pointed out to me\, that this question is closely r
elated to what physicists call "cosmological billards"\, so from a physica
l point of view one should expect Kostant convexity to hold and\, thus\, t
ime travel to be impossible on Kac-Moody symmetric spaces.\n\n(Global) Kos
tant convexity is the question how the A-part in the Iwasawa decomposition
KAN changes if one multiplies with an element in K from the wrong side. T
here is a local version concerning the adjoint action on the Kac-Moody alg
ebra\, and this holds by a result by Kac and Peterson from 1984.\n\nI star
ted thinking about Kac-Moody groups as a postdoc in 2005 (when together wi
th three peers at TU Darmstadt we founded what we then called the "anonymo
us Kac-Moody theorists")\, and this is a report on various things we encou
ntered along the way\; two of the three other anonymous Kac-Moody theorist
s became key collaborators of mine over the years. My collaborators and st
udents during various stages of my work will be mentioned explicitly as we
make our way through the various observations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Conjugacy classes in the Weyl group and nilpotent orb
its\nby Zhiwei Yun (MIT Mathematics) as part of MIT Infinite Dimension
al Algebra Seminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\
n\nAbstract\nThe Weyl group and the nilpotent orbits are two basic objects
attached to a semisimple Lie group. In this talk\, I will describe two ve
ry different geometric constructions relating these two objects\, due to K
azhdan-Lusztig\, Lusztig\, and myself.\n\nThe main result is that these tw
o constructions give the same maps between conjugacy classes in the Weyl g
roup and the set of nilpotent orbits. It confirms a conjecture of Kazhdan
and Lusztig in the 80s. The proof uses affine Springer fibers\, and leads
to more open questions about them.\n

tract\nThe Deligne tensor categories are defined as an interpolation of th
e categories of representations of groups $GL_n$\, $O_n$\, $Sp_{2n}$ or $S
_n$ to the complex values of the parameter n. One can extend many classica
l representation-theoretic notions and constructions to this context. Thes
e complex rank analogs of classical objects provide insights into their st
able behavior patterns as n goes to infinity. \n\nI will talk about some o
f my results on Harish-Chandra bimodules in the Deligne categories. It is
known that in the classical case simple Harish-Chandra bimodules admit a c
lassification in terms of W-orbits of certain pairs of weights. However\,
the notion of weight is not well-defined in the setting of the Deligne cat
egories. I will explain how in complex rank the above-mentioned classifica
tion translates to a condition on the corresponding (left and right) centr
al characters.\n\nAnother interesting phenomenon arising in complex rank i
s that there are two ways to define Harish-Chandra bimodules. That is\, on
e can either require that the center acts locally finitely on a bimodule M
or that M has a finite K-type. The two conditions are known to be equival
ent for a semi-simple Lie algebra in the classical setting\, however\, in
the Deligne categories\, it is no longer the case. I will talk about a way
to construct examples of Harish-Chandra bimodules of finite K-type using
the ultraproduct realization of the Deligne categories.\n

by Ben Webster (University of Waterloo + Perimeter Institute) as part of M
IT Infinite Dimensional Algebra Seminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in
the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\nCoulomb branches are a new construction
of symplectic singularities based in 3-dimensional N=4 supersymmetric quan
tum field theory. Even in the case where these recover well-known singula
rities such as nilcones and symmetric powers of $C^2$\, they still shed ne
w light on these varieties. In particular\, they are a presentation which
is much better adapted to the construction of tilting generators using th
e approach of Bezrukavnikov and Kaledin. I'll discuss how this leads to i
nteresting noncommutative symplectic resolutions of Coulomb branches\, and
a description of the wall-crossing functors for the categories of coheren
t sheaves on resolutions.\n

nd V. Hinich\, arXiv:2209.06253 [1].\n\nWe introduce a notion of a root gr
oupoid as a replacement of the notion of Weyl group for (Kac-Moody) Lie su
peralgebras. The objects of the root groupoid classify certain root data\
, the arrows are defined by generators and relations. As an abstract group
oid the root groupoid has many connected components and we show that to so
me of them one can associate an interesting family of Lie superalgebras wh
ich we call root superalgebras. Classical Kac-Moody Lie superalgebras appe
ar as minimal root superalgebras in fully reflectable components. We class
ify all root superalgebras in these components.\n\nTo each connected compo
nent we associate a graph (called skeleton) generalizing the Cayley graph
of the Weyl group. The skeleton satisfies a version of Coxeter property ge
neralizing the fact that the Weyl group of a Kac-Moody Lie algebra is Coxe
ter.\n

nfinite Dimensional Algebra Seminar\n\nLecture held in Room: 2-135 in the

arieties and the Schubert bases of their equivariant cohomology has been e
xtended to cotangent bundles and Segre-Schwartz-MacPherson classes. I will
discuss the behavior of these bases in the restriction in cohomology from
type A to type C Grassmannians. When considering their cotangent bundles\
, this behavior has a further geometric interpretation in terms of Maulik-
Okounkov stable envelopes and Lagrangian correspondences. Both settings ca
n be considered from the combinatorial perspective of puzzle rules\, which
in turn are interpreted as quantum integrable systems via R-matrices for
the sl(3) Yangian. This is joint work with Allen Knutson and Paul Zinn-Jus

DESCRIPTION:Title: Subregular nilpotent orbits and explicit character fo
rmulas for modules over affine Lie algebras.\nby Vasily Krylov (MIT Ma
thematics) as part of MIT Infinite Dimensional Algebra Seminar\n\nLecture
held in Room: 2-135 in the Simons building.\n\nAbstract\nThe talk is based
on the joint work with Roman Bezrukavnikov and Victor Kac (arXiv:2209.088
65). Let g be a simple Lie algebra and let $\\hat{g}$ be the corresponding
affine Lie algebra. It is known that characters of irreducible (highest w
eight) representations of $\\hat{g}$ can be computed in terms of values at
q=1 of affine (inverse) Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials. These values can be
computed recursively but there are no explicit formulas for them in genera
l. The goal of this talk is to describe certain cases when we can compute
the values above explicitly resulting in explicit formulas for characters
of certain irreducible $\\hat{g}$-modules (partly generalizing results of
Kac and Wakimoto). The calculation relies on the description of the corres
ponding module over the affine Hecke algebra in terms of the equivariant $
K$-theory of the Springer resolution. Time permitting we will discuss poss
ible generalizations.\n
