In this note, we extend the results of arxiv:1111.2266 and arxiv:1203.1583 to the non simply laced case. To this end we introduce and study the twisted zastava spaces.

In this note we provide a new, algebraic proof of the excessive Laurent phenomenon for mutations of potentials (in the sense of [Galkin S., Usnich A., Preprint IPMU 10-0100, 2010]) by introducing to this theory the analogue of the upper bounds from [Berenstein A., Fomin S., Zelevinsky A., Duke Math. J. 126 (2005), 1-52]. ...

We reformulate the De Concini -- Toledano Laredo conjecture about the monodromy of the Casimir connection in terms of a relation between the Lusztig's symmetries of quantum group modules and the monodromy in the vanishing cycles of factorizable sheaves. ...

Mark Haiman has reduced Macdonald positivity conjecture to a statement about geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points on the plane, and formulated a generalization of the conjectures where the symmetric group is replaced by the wreath product $S_n\ltimes (Z/r Z)^n$. He has proven the original conjecture by establishing the geometric statement about the Hilbert ...

We describe the (equivariant) intersection cohomology of certain moduli spaces ("framed Uhlenbeck spaces") together with some structures on them (such as e.g.\ the Poincar\'e pairing) in terms of representation theory of some vertex operator algebras ("W-algebras"). ...

We establish faithfulness of braid group actions generated by twists along an ADE configuration of 22-spherical objects in a derived category. Our major tool is the Garside structure on braid groups of type ADE. This faithfulness result provides the missing ingredient in Bridgeland's description of a space of stability conditions associated to a Kleinian singularity. ...

Drinfeld zastava is a certain closure of the moduli space of maps from the projective line to the Kashiwara flag scheme of an affine Lie algebra g^. In case g is the symplectic Lie algebra spN, we introduce an affine, reduced, irreducible, normal quiver variety Z which maps to the zastava space isomorphically in characteristic ...

Given a Laurent polynomial f, one can form the period of f: this is a function of one complex variable that plays an important role in mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds. Mutations are a particular class of birational transformations acting on Laurent polynomials in two variables; they preserve the period and are closely connected with ...

In this paper we study the derived categories of coherent sheaves on Grassmannians Gr(k,n), defined over the ring of integers. We prove that the category D^b(Gr(k,n)) has a semi-orthogonal decomposition, with components being full subcategories of the derived category of representations of GL_k. This in particular implies existence of a full exceptional collection, which is ...

Let G be an almost simple simply connected group over complex numbers. For a positive element α of the coroot lattice of G let Z^α denote the space of based maps from the projective line to the flag variety of G of degree α. This space is known to be isomorphic to the space of ...

Kirillov has described a McKay correspondence for finite subgroups of that associates to each “height” function an affine Dynkin quiver together with a derived equivalence between equivariant sheaves on and representations of this quiver. The equivalences for different height functions are then related by reflection functors for quiver representations. The main goal of this article ...

Recently Alday, Gaiotto and Tachikawa proposed a conjecture relating 4-dimensional super-symmetric gauge theory for a gauge group G with certain 2-dimensional conformal field theory. This conjecture implies the existence of certain structures on the (equivariant) intersection cohomology of the Uhlenbeck partial compactification of the moduli space of framed G-bundles on P^2. More precisely, it predicts ...

We define the triangulated category of relative singularities of a closed subscheme in a scheme. When the closed subscheme is a Cartier divisor, we consider matrix factorizations of the related section of a line bundle, and their analogues with locally free sheaves replaced by coherent ones. The appropriate exotic derived category of coherent matrix factorizations ...

We discuss the problem of stable conjugacy of finite subgroups of Cremona
groups. We show that the group $H^1(G,Pic(X))$ is a stable birational invariant
and compute this group in some cases. ...

We study twist-field representations of the W-algebras and generalize the construction of the corresponding vertex operators to D- and B-series. We demonstrate how the computation of characters of such representations leads to the nontrivial identities involving lattice theta-functions. We propose a construction of their exact conformal blocks, which for D-series express them in terms of ...

In this paper, we show that bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves (considered as DG categories) on separated schemes of finite type over a field of characteristic zero are homotopically finitely presented. This confirms a conjecture of Kontsevich. The proof uses categorical resolution of singularities of Kuznetsov and Lunts, which is based on the ordinary ...

We consider the isomonodromy problems for flat $G$-bundles over punctured
elliptic curves $\Sigma_\tau$ with regular singularities of connections at
marked points. The bundles are classified by their characteristic classes.
These classes are elements of the second cohomology group
$H^2(\Sigma_\tau,{\mathcal Z}(G))$, where ${\mathcal Z}(G)$ is the center of
$G$. For any complex simple Lie group $G$ and arbitrary class we define ...

We construct quasi-phantom admissible subcategories in the derived category of coherent sheaves on the Beauville surface S. These quasi-phantoms subcategories appear as right orthogonals to subcategories generated by exceptional collections of maximal possible length 4 on S. We prove that there are exactly 6 exceptional collections consisting of line bundles (up to a twist) and these collections ...

We study the geometry of equiclassical strata of the discriminant in the space of plane curves of a given degree, which are families of curves of given degree, genus and class (degree of the dual curve). Our main observation is that the use of duality transformation leads to a series of new sufficient conditions for ...

For each del Pezzo surface $S$ with du Val singularities, we determine
whether it admits a $(-K_S)$-polar cylinder or not. If it allows one, then we
present an effective divisor $D$ that is $\mathbb{Q}$-linearly equivalent to
$-K_S$ and such that the open set $S\setminus\mathrm{Supp}(D)$ is a cylinder.
As a corollary, we classify all the del Pezzo surfaces with du ...

In the authors's previous work on symmetric differentials and their
connection to the topological properties of the ambient manifold, a class of
symmetric differentials was introduced: closed symmetric differentials
([BoDeO11] and [BoDeO13]). In this article we give a description of the local
structure of closed symmetric 2-differentials on complex surfaces, with an
emphasis towards the local decompositions as products of ...

We study the cohomology of complexes of ordinary (non-decorated) graphs, introduced by M. Kontsevich. We construct spectral sequences converging to zero whose first page contains the graph cohomology. In particular, these series may be used to show the existence of an infinite series of previously unknown and provably non-trivial cohomology classes, and put constraints on ...

Contraherent cosheaves are globalizations of cotorsion (or similar) modules over commutative rings obtained by gluing together over a scheme. The category of contraherent cosheaves over a scheme is a Quillen exact category with exact functors of infinite product. Over a quasi-compact semi-separated scheme or a Noetherian scheme of finite Krull dimension (in a different version ...

We consider the systems of diffusion-orthogonal polynomials, defined in the
work [1] of D. Bakry, S. Orevkov and M. Zani and (particularly) explain why
these systems with boundary of maximal possible degree should always come from
the group, generated by reflections. Our proof works for the dimensions $2$ (on
which this phenomena was discovered) and $3$, and fails in ...
