Hecke algebras with unequal parameters and Vogan's left cell invariantsFeb 05 2015In 1979, Vogan introduced a generalised $\\tau$ -invariant for characterising primitive ideals in enveloping algebras. Via a known dictionary this translates to an invariant of left cells in the sense of Kazhdan and Lusztig. Although it is not a complete ... More

Some complete intersection symplectic quotients in positive characteristic: invariants of a vector and a covectorJun 24 2010Apr 04 2011Given a linear action of a group $G$ on a $K$-vector space $V$, we consider the invariant ring $K[V \oplus V^*]^G$, where $V^*$ is the dual space. We are particularly interested in the case where $V =\gfq^n$ and $G$ is the group $U_n$ of all upper unipotent ... More
