On the notion of conductor in the local geometric Langlands correspondence
Under the local Langlands correspondence, the conductor of an
irreducible representation of $\operatorname{Gl}_n(F)$ is greater than the
Swan conductor of the corresponding Galois representation. In
this paper, we establish the geometric analogue of this statement
by showing that the conductor of a categorical representation
of the loop group is greater than the irregularity of the corresponding
meromorphic connection.

On positive definiteness over locally compact quantum groups
The notion of positivedefinite functions over locally compact
quantum
groups was recently introduced and studied by Daws and Salmi.
Based
on this work, we generalize various wellknown results about
positivedefinite
functions over groups to the quantum framework. Among these are
theorems
on "square roots" of positivedefinite functions, comparison
of
various topologies, positivedefinite measures and characterizations
of amenability, and the separation property with respect to compact
quantum subgroups.

Categorical Aspects of Quantum Groups: Multipliers and Intrinsic Groups
We show that the assignment of the (left) completely bounded
multiplier algebra
$M_{cb}^l(L^1(\mathbb G))$ to a locally compact quantum group
$\mathbb G$, and
the assignment of the intrinsic group, form functors between
appropriate
categories. Morphisms of locally compact quantum
groups can be described by Hopf $*$homomorphisms between universal
$C^*$algebras, by bicharacters, or by special sorts of coactions.
We show that the whole
theory of completely bounded multipliers can be lifted to the
universal
$C^*$algebra level, and that then the different pictures of
both multipliers
(reduced, universal, and as centralisers)
and morphisms interact in extremely natural ways. The intrinsic
group of a
quantum group can be realised as a class of multipliers, and
so our techniques
immediately apply. We also show how to think of the intrinsic
group using
the universal $C^*$algebra picture, and then, again, show how
the differing
views on the intrinsic group interact naturally with morphisms.
We show that
the intrinsic group is the ``maximal classical'' quantum subgroup
of a locally
compact quantum group, show that it is even closed in the strong
Vaes sense,
and that the intrinsic group functor is an adjoint to the inclusion
functor
from locally compact groups to quantum groups.

Lifting Representations of Finite Reductive Groups I: Semisimple Conjugacy Classes
Suppose that $\tilde{G}$ is a connected reductive group
defined over a field $k$, and
$\Gamma$ is a finite group acting via $k$automorphisms
of $\tilde{G}$ satisfying a certain quasisemisimplicity condition.
Then the identity component of the group of $\Gamma$fixed points
in $\tilde{G}$ is reductive.
We axiomatize the main features of the relationship between this
fixedpoint group and the pair $(\tilde{G},\Gamma)$,
and consider any group $G$ satisfying the axioms.
If both $\tilde{G}$ and $G$ are $k$quasisplit, then we
can consider their duals $\tilde{G}^*$ and $G^*$.
We show the existence of and give an explicit formula for a natural
map from the set of semisimple stable conjugacy classes in $G^*(k)$
to the analogous set for $\tilde{G}^*(k)$.
If $k$ is finite, then our groups are automatically quasisplit,
and our result specializes to give a map
of semisimple conjugacy classes.
Since such classes parametrize packets of irreducible representations
of $G(k)$ and $\tilde{G}(k)$, one obtains a mapping of such packets.

Expression d'un facteur epsilon de paire par une formule intÃ©grale
Let $E/F$ be a quadratic extension of $p$adic fields and
let $d$, $m$ be nonnegative integers of distinct parities. Fix
admissible irreducible tempered representations $\pi$ and $\sigma$ of
$GL_d(E)$ and $GL_m(E)$ respectively. We assume that $\pi$ and
$\sigma$ are conjugatedual. That is to say $\pi\simeq \pi^{\vee,c}$
and $\sigma\simeq \sigma^{\vee,c}$ where $c$ is the non trivial
$F$automorphism of $E$. This implies, we can extend $\pi$ to an
unitary representation $\tilde{\pi}$ of a nonconnected group
$GL_d(E)\rtimes \{1,\theta\}$. Define $\tilde{\sigma}$ the same
way. We state and prove an integral formula for
$\epsilon(1/2,\pi\times \sigma,\psi_E)$ involving the characters of
$\tilde{\pi}$ and $\tilde{\sigma}$. This formula is related to the
local GanGrossPrasad conjecture for unitary groups.

Symplectic Degenerate Flag Varieties
A simple finite dimensional module $V_\lambda$ of a simple complex
algebraic group $G$ is naturally endowed with a filtration induced by the PBWfiltration
of $U(\mathrm{Lie}\, G)$. The associated graded space $V_\lambda^a$ is a module
for the group $G^a$, which can be roughly described as a semidirect product of a
Borel subgroup of $G$ and a large commutative unipotent group $\mathbb{G}_a^M$. In analogy
to the flag variety $\mathcal{F}_\lambda=G.[v_\lambda]\subset \mathbb{P}(V_\lambda)$,
we call the closure
$\overline{G^a.[v_\lambda]}\subset \mathbb{P}(V_\lambda^a)$
of the $G^a$orbit through the highest weight line the degenerate flag variety $\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$.
In general this is a
singular variety, but we conjecture that it has many nice properties similar to
that of Schubert varieties. In this paper we consider the case of $G$ being the symplectic group.
The symplectic case is important for the conjecture
because it is the first known case where even for fundamental weights $\omega$ the varieties
$\mathcal{F}^a_\omega$ differ from $\mathcal{F}_\omega$. We give an explicit
construction of the varieties $Sp\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$ and construct desingularizations,
similar to the BottSamelson resolutions in the classical case. We prove that $Sp\mathcal{F}^a_\lambda$
are normal locally complete intersections with terminal and rational singularities.
We also show that these varieties are Frobenius split. Using the above mentioned results, we
prove an analogue of the BorelWeil theorem and obtain a $q$character formula
for the characters of irreducible $Sp_{2n}$modules via the AtiyahBottLefschetz fixed
points formula.

Transfer of Plancherel Measures for Unitary Supercuspidal Representations between $p$adic Inner Forms
Let $F$ be a $p$adic field of characteristic $0$, and let $M$ be an $F$Levi subgroup of a connected reductive $F$split group such that $\Pi_{i=1}^{r} SL_{n_i} \subseteq M \subseteq \Pi_{i=1}^{r} GL_{n_i}$ for positive integers $r$ and $n_i$. We prove that the Plancherel measure for any unitary supercuspidal representation of $M(F)$ is identically transferred under the local JacquetLanglands type correspondence between $M$ and its $F$inner forms, assuming a working hypothesis that Plancherel measures are invariant on a certain set. This work extends the result of
MuiÄ and Savin (2000) for Siegel Levi subgroups of the groups $SO_{4n}$ and $Sp_{4n}$ under the local JacquetLanglands correspondence. It can be applied to a simply connected simple $F$group of type $E_6$ or $E_7$, and a connected reductive $F$group of type $A_{n}$, $B_{n}$, $C_n$ or $D_n$.

The Minimal Growth Rate of Cocompact Coxeter Groups in Hyperbolic 3space
Due to work of W. Parry it is known that the growth
rate of a hyperbolic Coxeter group acting cocompactly on ${\mathbb H^3}$
is a Salem number. This being the arithmetic situation, we prove that the simplex group
(3,5,3) has smallest growth rate among all cocompact hyperbolic
Coxeter groups, and that it is as such unique.
Our approach provides a different proof for
the analog situation in ${\mathbb H^2}$
where E. Hironaka identified Lehmer's number as the minimal growth
rate among all cocompact planar hyperbolic Coxeter groups and showed
that it is (uniquely) achieved by the Coxeter triangle group (3,7).

Haar Null Sets and the Consistent Reflection of Nonmeagreness
A subset $X$ of a Polish group $G$ is called Haar null if there exists
a Borel set $B \supset X$ and Borel probability measure $\mu$ on $G$ such that
$\mu(gBh)=0$ for every $g,h \in G$.
We prove that there exist a set $X \subset \mathbb R$ that is not Lebesgue null and a
Borel probability measure $\mu$ such that $\mu(X + t) = 0$ for every $t \in
\mathbb R$.
This answers a question from David Fremlin's problem list by showing
that one cannot simplify the definition of a Haar null set by leaving out the
Borel set $B$. (The answer was already known assuming the Continuum
Hypothesis.)
This result motivates the following Baire category analogue. It is consistent
with $ZFC$ that there exist an abelian Polish group $G$ and a Cantor
set $C \subset G$ such that for every nonmeagre set $X \subset G$ there exists a $t
\in G$ such that $C \cap (X + t)$ is relatively nonmeagre in $C$. This
essentially generalises results of BartoszyÅski and BurkeMiller.

Continuity of convolution of test functions on Lie groups
For a Lie group $G$, we show that the map
$C^\infty_c(G)\times C^\infty_c(G)\to C^\infty_c(G)$,
$(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma*\eta$
taking a pair of
test functions to their convolution is continuous if and only if $G$ is $\sigma$compact.
More generally, consider $r,s,t
\in \mathbb{N}_0\cup\{\infty\}$ with $t\leq r+s$, locally convex spaces $E_1$, $E_2$
and a continuous bilinear map $b\colon E_1\times E_2\to F$
to a complete locally convex space $F$.
Let $\beta\colon C^r_c(G,E_1)\times C^s_c(G,E_2)\to C^t_c(G,F)$,
$(\gamma,\eta)\mapsto \gamma *_b\eta$ be the associated convolution map.
The main result is a characterization of those $(G,r,s,t,b)$
for which $\beta$ is continuous.

of compactly supported continuous functions on a locally compact group

Convolution of Trace Class Operators over Locally Compact Quantum Groups
We study locally compact quantum groups $\mathbb{G}$ through the
convolution algebras $L_1(\mathbb{G})$ and $(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})),
\triangleright)$. We prove that the reduced quantum group
$C^*$algebra $C_0(\mathbb{G})$ can be recovered from the convolution
$\triangleright$ by showing that the right $T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$module
$\langle K(L_2(\mathbb{G}) \triangleright T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\rangle$ is
equal to $C_0(\mathbb{G})$. On the other hand, we show that the left
$T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$module $\langle T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\triangleright
K(L_2(\mathbb{G})\rangle$ is isomorphic to the reduced crossed product
$C_0(\widehat{\mathbb{G}}) \,_r\!\ltimes C_0(\mathbb{G})$, and hence is
a much larger $C^*$subalgebra of $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$.
We establish a natural isomorphism between the completely bounded
right multiplier algebras of $L_1(\mathbb{G})$ and
$(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})), \triangleright)$, and settle two invariance
problems associated with the representation theorem of
JungeNeufangRuan (2009). We characterize regularity and discreteness
of the quantum group $\mathbb{G}$ in terms of continuity properties of
the convolution $\triangleright$ on $T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. We prove
that if $\mathbb{G}$ is semiregular, then the space
$\langle T(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\triangleright B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))\rangle$ of right
$\mathbb{G}$continuous operators on $L_2(\mathbb{G})$, which was
introduced by Bekka (1990) for $L_{\infty}(G)$, is a unital $C^*$subalgebra
of $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. In the representation framework formulated by
NeufangRuanSpronk (2008) and JungeNeufangRuan, we show that the
dual properties of compactness and discreteness can be characterized
simultaneously via automatic normality of quantum group bimodule maps
on $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$. We also characterize some commutation
relations of completely bounded multipliers of $(T(L_2(\mathbb{G})),
\triangleright)$ over $B(L_2(\mathbb{G}))$.

Distance Sets of Urysohn Metric Spaces
A metric space $\mathrm{M}=(M;\operatorname{d})$ is {\em homogeneous} if for every
isometry $f$ of a finite subspace of $\mathrm{M}$ to a subspace of
$\mathrm{M}$ there exists an isometry of $\mathrm{M}$ onto
$\mathrm{M}$ extending $f$. The space $\mathrm{M}$ is {\em universal}
if it isometrically embeds every finite metric space $\mathrm{F}$ with
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{F})\subseteq \operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})$. (With
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})$ being the set of distances between points in
$\mathrm{M}$.)
A metric space $\boldsymbol{U}$ is an {\em Urysohn} metric space if
it is homogeneous, universal, separable and complete. (It is not
difficult to deduce
that an Urysohn metric space $\boldsymbol{U}$ isometrically embeds
every separable metric space $\mathrm{M}$ with
$\operatorname{dist}(\mathrm{M})\subseteq \operatorname{dist}(\boldsymbol{U})$.)
The main results are: (1) A characterization of the sets
$\operatorname{dist}(\boldsymbol{U})$ for Urysohn metric spaces $\boldsymbol{U}$.
(2) If $R$ is the distance set of an Urysohn metric space and
$\mathrm{M}$ and $\mathrm{N}$ are two metric spaces, of any
cardinality with distances in $R$, then they amalgamate disjointly to
a metric space with distances in $R$. (3) The completion of every
homogeneous, universal, separable metric space $\mathrm{M}$ is
homogeneous.

Analysis of the BrylinskiKostant Model for Spherical Minimal Representations
We revisit with another view point the construction by R. Brylinski
and B. Kostant of minimal representations of simple Lie groups. We
start from a pair $(V,Q)$, where $V$ is a complex vector space and $Q$
a homogeneous polynomial of degree 4 on $V$.
The manifold $\Xi $ is an orbit of a covering of ${\rm Conf}(V,Q)$,
the conformal group of the pair $(V,Q)$, in a finite dimensional
representation space.
By a generalized KantorKoecherTits construction we obtain a complex
simple Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$, and furthermore a real
form ${\mathfrak g}_{\mathbb R}$. The connected and simply connected Lie
group $G_{\mathbb R}$ with ${\rm Lie}(G_{\mathbb R})={\mathfrak
g}_{\mathbb R}$ acts unitarily on a Hilbert space of holomorphic
functions defined on the manifold $\Xi $.

On Flag Curvature of Homogeneous Randers Spaces
In this paper we give an explicit formula for the flag curvature of
homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type and apply this formula to
obtain some interesting results. We first deduce an explicit formula
for the flag curvature of an arbitrary left invariant Randers metric
on a twostep nilpotent Lie group. Then we obtain a classification of
negatively curved homogeneous Randers spaces of Douglas type. This
results, in particular, in many examples of homogeneous nonRiemannian
Finsler spaces with negative flag curvature. Finally, we prove a
rigidity result that a homogeneous Randers space of Berwald type whose
flag curvature is everywhere nonzero must be Riemannian.

We classify all genuine unitary representations of the metaplectic group whose

oscillator representation. In a previous paper we exhibited a certain family

induction from the tensor product of a onedimensional representation and an
oscillator representation. Our main theorem asserts that this family exhausts
the genuine omegaregular unitary dual of the metaplectic group.

Gosset Polytopes in Picard Groups of del Pezzo Surfaces
In this article, we study the correspondence between the geometry of
del Pezzo surfaces $S_{r}$ and the geometry of the $r$dimensional Gosset
polytopes $(r4)_{21}$. We construct Gosset polytopes $(r4)_{21}$ in
$\operatorname{Pic} S_{r}\otimes\mathbb{Q}$ whose vertices are lines, and we identify
divisor classes in $\operatorname{Pic} S_{r}$ corresponding to $(a1)$simplexes ($a\leq
r$), $(r1)$simplexes and $(r1)$crosspolytopes of the polytope $(r4)_{21}$.
Then we explain how these classes correspond to skew $a$lines($a\leq r$),
exceptional systems, and rulings, respectively.
As an application, we work on the monoidal transform for lines to study the
local geometry of the polytope $(r4)_{21}$. And we show that the Gieser transformation
and the Bertini transformation induce a symmetry of polytopes $3_{21}$ and
$4_{21}$, respectively.

Lifting Quasianalytic Mappings over Invariants
Let $\rho \colon G \to \operatorname{GL}(V)$ be a rational finite dimensional complex representation of a reductive linear
algebraic group $G$, and let $\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n$ be a system of generators of the algebra of
invariant polynomials $\mathbb C[V]^G$.
We study the problem of lifting mappings $f\colon \mathbb R^q \supseteq U \to \sigma(V) \subseteq \mathbb C^n$
over the mapping of invariants
$\sigma=(\sigma_1,\dots,\sigma_n) \colon V \to \sigma(V)$. Note that $\sigma(V)$ can be identified with the categorical quotient $V /\!\!/ G$
and its points correspond bijectively to the closed orbits in $V$. We prove that if $f$ belongs to a quasianalytic subclass
$\mathcal C \subseteq C^\infty$ satisfying some mild closedness properties that guarantee resolution of singularities in
$\mathcal C$,
e.g., the real analytic class, then $f$ admits a lift of the
same class $\mathcal C$ after desingularization by local blowups and local power substitutions.
As a consequence we show that $f$ itself allows for a lift
that belongs to $\operatorname{SBV}_{\operatorname{loc}}$, i.e., special functions of bounded variation.
If $\rho$ is a real representation of a compact Lie group, we obtain stronger versions.

Casselman's Basis of Iwahori Vectors and the Bruhat Order
W. Casselman defined a basis $f_u$ of Iwahori fixed vectors of a spherical
representation $(\pi, V)$ of a split semisimple $p$adic group $G$ over a
nonarchimedean local field $F$ by the condition that it be dual to the
intertwining operators, indexed by elements $u$ of the Weyl group $W$. On
the other hand, there is a natural basis $\psi_u$, and one seeks to find the
transition matrices between the two bases. Thus, let $f_u = \sum_v \tilde{m}
(u, v) \psi_v$ and $\psi_u = \sum_v m (u, v) f_v$. Using the IwahoriHecke
algebra we prove that if a combinatorial condition is satisfied, then $m (u,
v) = \prod_{\alpha} \frac{1  q^{ 1} \mathbf{z}^{\alpha}}{1
\mathbf{z}^{\alpha}}$, where $\mathbf z$ are the Langlands parameters
for the representation and $\alpha$ runs through the set $S (u, v)$ of
positive coroots $\alpha \in \hat{\Phi}$ (the dual root system of $G$) such
that $u \leqslant v r_{\alpha} < v$ with $r_{\alpha}$ the reflection
corresponding to $\alpha$. The condition is conjecturally always satisfied
if $G$ is simplylaced and the KazhdanLusztig polynomial $P_{w_0 v, w_0 u}
= 1$ with $w_0$ the long Weyl group element. There is a similar formula for
$\tilde{m}$ conjecturally satisfied if $P_{u, v} = 1$.
This leads to various combinatorial conjectures.

The Cubic Dirac Operator for InfiniteDimensonal Lie Algebras
Let $\mathfrak{g}=\bigoplus_{i\in\mathbb{Z}} \mathfrak{g}_i$ be an infinitedimensional graded
Lie algebra, with $\dim\mathfrak{g}_i<\infty$, equipped with a nondegenerate
symmetric bilinear form $B$ of degree $0$. The quantum Weil algebra
$\widehat{\mathcal{W}}\mathfrak{g}$ is a completion of the tensor product of the
enveloping and Clifford algebras of $\mathfrak{g}$. Provided that the
KacPeterson class of $\mathfrak{g}$ vanishes, one can construct a cubic Dirac
operator $\mathcal{D}\in\widehat{\mathcal{W}}(\mathfrak{g})$, whose square is a quadratic Casimir
element. We show that this condition holds for symmetrizable
KacMoody algebras. Extending Kostant's arguments, one obtains
generalized WeylKac character formulas for suitable ``equal rank''
Lie subalgebras of KacMoody algebras. These extend the formulas of
G. Landweber for affine Lie algebras.

A BottBorelWeil Theorem for Diagonal Indgroups
A diagonal indgroup is a direct limit of classical affine algebraic
groups of growing rank under a class of
inclusions that contains the inclusion
$$
SL(n)\to SL(2n), \quad
M\mapsto \begin{pmatrix}M & 0 \\ 0 & M \end{pmatrix}
$$
as a typical special case. If $G$ is a diagonal indgroup and
$B\subset G$ is a Borel indsubgroup,
we consider the indvariety $G/B$ and compute the cohomology
$H^\ell(G/B,\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$
of any $G$equivariant line bundle $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ on
$G/B$. It has been known that, for a generic $\lambda$,
all cohomology groups of $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ vanish, and that a
nongeneric equivariant
line bundle $\mathcal{O}_{\lambda}$ has at most one
nonzero cohomology group. The new result of this paper is a
precise description of when
$H^j(G/B,\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is nonzero and the proof of the fact
that, whenever nonzero,
$H^j(G/B, \mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is a $G$module dual to a highest
weight module.
The main difficulty is in defining an appropriate analog $W_B$ of the
Weyl group, so that the action of $W_B$
on weights of $G$ is compatible with the analog of the Demazure
``action" of the Weyl group on the cohomology
of line bundles. The highest weight corresponding to $H^j(G/B,
\mathcal{O}_{\lambda})$ is then computed
by a procedure similar to that in the classical BottBorelWeil theorem.
