Act globally, compute locally: group actions, fixed points, and localization

Localization is a topological technique that allows us to make global equivariant computations in terms of local data at the fixed points. For example, we may compute a global integral by summing

Cyclic cohomology of Lie algebras

We define and completely determine the category of Yetter-Drinfeld modules over Lie algebras. We prove a one to one cor- respondence between Yetter-Drinfeld modules over a Lie algebra and those over



Equivariant cohomology and the Maurer-Cartan equation

Let G be a compact, connected Lie group, acting smoothly on a manifold M. Goresky-Kottwitz-MacPherson described a small Cartan model for the equivariant cohomology of M, quasi-isomorphic to the

BRST model for equivariant cohomology and representatives for the equivariant thom class

In this paper the BRST formalism for topological field theories is studied in a mathematical setting. The BRST operator is obtained as a member of a one parameter family of operators connecting the

Instantons on Noncommutative ℝ4, and (2,0) Superconformal Six Dimensional Theory

Abstract:We show that the resolution of moduli space of ideal instantons parameterizes the instantons on noncommutative ℝ4. This moduli space appears to be the Higgs branch of the theory of

Equivariant cohomology, Koszul duality, and the localization theorem

(1.1) This paper concerns three aspects of the action of a compact group K on a space X . The ®rst is concrete and the others are rather abstract. (1) Equivariantly formal spaces. These have the

Noncommutative Manifolds, the Instanton Algebra¶and Isospectral Deformations

Abstract: We give new examples of noncommutative manifolds that are less standard than the NC-torus or Moyal deformations of ℝn. They arise naturally from basic considerations of noncommutative

Quantum Groups

Here is an introduction to the theory of quantum groups with emphasis on the spectacular connections with knot theory and Drinfeld's recent fundamental contributions. It presents the quantum groups

Covariant realization of quantum spaces as star products by Drinfeld twists

Covariance of a quantum space with respect to a quantum enveloping algebra ties the deformation of the multiplication of the space algebra to the deformation of the coproduct of the enveloping
