# The Character Theory of a Complex Group

@article{BenZvi2009TheCT, title={The Character Theory of a Complex Group}, author={David Ben-Zvi and David Nadler}, journal={arXiv: Representation Theory}, year={2009} }

We apply the ideas of derived algebraic geometry and topological field theory to the representation theory of reductive groups. Our focus is the Hecke category of Borel-equivariant D-modules on the flag variety of a complex reductive group G (equivalently, the category of Harish Chandra bimodules of trivial central character) and its monodromic variant. The Hecke category is a categorified analogue of the finite Hecke algebra, which is a finite-dimensional semi-simple symmetric Frobenius…
