Events for September 6, 2017 from General and Seminar calendars

Noncommutative Geometry Seminar

Time: 2:00PM - 2:50PM

Location: BLOC 628

Speaker: Shilin Yu, Texas A&M University

Title: Towards a geometric understanding of Mackey-Higson bijection

Abstract: Connes and Higson observed that the well-known Baum-Connes-Kasparov conjecture in operator algebra suggests a mysterious bijection between the tempered dual of a real reductive group and that of its Cartan motion group, which was already conjectured by Mackey in 1970's. In this talk, I will show that this bijection follows naturally from families of D-modules on the flag variety. I will also discuss its relationship with Kirillov's coadjoint orbit method if time allows.
