Extensions of Grothendieck's theorem on principal bundles over the projective line

Thaddeus, M (Columbia)
Tuesday 21 June 2011, 11:30-12:30

Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse


Let G be a split reductive group over a field. Grothendieck and Harder proved that any principal G-bundle over the projective line reduces (essentially uniquely) to a maximal torus. In joint work with Johan Martens, we show that this remains true when the base is a chain of lines, a football, a chain of footballs, a finite abelian gerbe over any of these, or the stack-theoretic quotient of any of these by a torus action.
