Perverse sheaves with nilpotent singular support on the stack of coherent sheaves on an elliptic curve
We define a stratification of the moduli stack of coherent sheaves on an elliptic curve which allows us (1) to give an explicit description of the irreducible components of the global nilpotent cone
The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of the BeilinsonBernstein localization theorem. It is a major result which introduced new geometric methods into representation theory. The theorem
An introduction to sheaf quantization
. The notion of sheaf quantization has many faces: an enhancement of the notion of constructible sheaves, the Betti counterpart of Fukaya–Floer theory, a topological realization of WKB-states in
Equivalent definitions of Arthur packets for real quasisplit unitary groups
Mok has defined Arthur packets for quasisplit unitary groups. His definition follows Arthur’s work on classical groups and relies on harmonic analysis. For real groups there is an alternative definition

We establish some cohomological bounds in $D$-module theory that are known in the holonomic case and folklore in general. The method rests on a generalization of the $b$-function lemma for
Absolute sets of rigid local systems
The absolute sets of local systems on a smooth complex algebraic variety are the subject of a conjecture of [BW] based on an analogy with special subvarieties of Shimura varieties. An absolute set
Borel-Moore homology of determinantal varieties
Abstract. We compute the rational Borel–Moore homology groups for affine determinantal varieties in the spaces of general, symmetric, and skew-symmetric matrices, solving a problem suggested by the
Estimates for zero loci of Bernstein-Sato ideals
We give estimates for the zero loci of Bernstein-Sato ideals. An upper bound is proved as a multivariate generalisation of the upper bound by Lichtin for the roots of Bernstein-Sato polynomials. The
Generic Vanishing, 1-forms, and Topology of Albanese Maps
The goal of this article is to study global holomorphic 1-forms on smooth projective varieties. First, we establish an interesting link between the generic vanishing theory and the topology of the
Generic vanishing and holomorphic 1-forms
The goal of this article is three-fold; first we establish an interesting link between some sets related to cohomologies of complex local systems and the stratification of the Albanese morphism of


The decomposition theorem, perverse sheaves and the topology of algebraic maps
We give a motivated introduction to the theory of perverse sheaves, culminating in the decomposition theorem of Beilinson, Bernstein, Deligne and Gabber. A goal of this survey is to show how the

Morse theory for constructible sheaves
In this chapter we prove the basic results about stratified Morse theory in the framework of constructible sheaves. We follow the notions of Goresky-MacPherson so that one can easily compare our
Singularities and Topology of Hypersurfaces
This book systematically presents a large number of basic results on the topology of complex algebraic varieties using the information on the local topology and geometry of a singularity. These

Intersection homology II
In [19, 20] we introduced topological invariants IH~,(X) called intersection homology groups for the study of singular spaces X. These groups depend on the choice of a perversity p: a perversity is a
