DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Dmitriy Rumynin (Warwick)\n \nTITLE: Quest for D-Aff
inity.\n\nABSTRACT: I am interested in the following problem: "classify
all smooth connected D-affine projective varieties". As a part of their
proof of Kazhdan-Lusztig Conjecture\, Beilinson and Bernstein have prove
d that the partial flag varieties G/P are D-affine. This is the current
state of art: no other examples are known but there is no proof that the
G/P-s exhaust all the possible examples.\n\nIn my talk I will show that
in some natural classes of varieties D-affinity implies that the variet
y is G/P\, review some examples of more general D-affine spaces\, and tr
y to convince the listeners that the problem is related to some other in
teresting questions in Algebraic Geometry.\n.........................\n\
nTime: 2pm\n\nPlace: FA1\n\nThere will be tea and biscuits at 1:40. All
are welcome.
