Algebra Seminar

On singularity properties of convolutions of algebraic morphisms

Yotam Hendel -- Weizmann Institute

Location:  Hill 525
Date & time: Wednesday, 10 October 2018 at 2:00PM - 3:00PM

ABSTRACT:  In analysis, the convolution of two functions results in a smoother, better behaved function. It is interesting to ask whether an analogue of this phenomenon exists in the setting of algebraic geometry. Let f and g be two morphisms from algebraic varieties X and Y to an algebraic group G. We define their convolution to be a morphism f?g from X×Y to G by first applying each morphism and then multiplying using the group structure of G.
