Instanton moduli spaces and W-algebras
Abstract: I will explain my recent joint work with
Cohomology groups of Hilbert schemes of points on the complex plane are
known to be a Fock space, that is a representation of Heisenberg
algebra. This result is generalized to the moduli spaces of torsion
free framed sheaves on the projective plane by Maulik-Okounkov and
Schiffmann-Vasserot last year. The cohomology groups are equivariant
ones under the natural torus action on moduli spaces. Heisenberg
algebra is generalized to the W-algebra of general linear groups.
Now we further generalize this result to moduli spaces of framed
holomorphic principal bundles whose structure groups are ADE groups.
The cohomology groups are now the equivariant intersection ones,
and we have the W-algebra representation on them. This result confirms
a special case of the so-called AGT conjecture for N=2 SUSY gauge
here is rough plan
First day. Hilbert schemes and Heisenberg algebras:
I will cover results in my book and a few new results, like Virasoro
1st half : Uhlenbeck spaces
I will explain basic properties of Uhlenbeck spaces.
2nd half : W-algebras
I will explain basics on W-algebras
I will explain our new results.
