Affine Hecke algebras, Langlands duality and geometric structure

Plymen, R (Manchester)
Monday 18 December 2006, 11:30-12:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I will begin with Langlands duality, the origin (in the local Langlands conjecture) of the Langlands-Deligne-Lusztig parameters (t,u,\rho), and the concept of an L-packet.

I will then move on to affine Hecke algebras H(W,q). Each parameter t is the central character of an induced H(W,q)-module.

I'll define the extended quotient, and describe a (conjectural) geometric structure for the set of simple H(W,q)-modules. This conjecture was inspired by the theorem of Baum & Nistor for the periodic cyclic homology of H(W,q).

This will be illustrated in some detail by the affine Hecke algebra attached to the exceptional group G_2.
