    Normality and Cohen-Macaulayness of local models of Shimura varieties

    Full text link
    We prove that in the unramified case, local models of Shimura varieties with Iwahori level structure are normal and Cohen Macaulay.Comment: 13 pages, final versio

    Unipotent variety in the group compactification

    Get PDF
    The unipotent variety of a reductive algebraic group GG plays an important role in the representation theory. In this paper, we will consider the closure \bar{\Cal U} of the unipotent variety in the De Concini-Procesi compactification Gˉ\bar{G} of a connected simple algebraic group GG. We will prove that \bar{\Cal U}-\Cal U is a union of some GG-stable pieces introduced by Lusztig in \cite{L4}. This was first conjectured by Lusztig. We will also give an explicit description of \bar{\Cal U}. It turns out that similar results hold for the closure of any Steinberg fiber in Gˉ\bar{G}.Comment: 21 pages. Final version.

    Some results on affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties

    Full text link
    The study of affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties originally arose from arithmetic geometry, but many problems on affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties are purely Lie-theoretic in nature. This survey deals with recent progress on several important problems on affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties. The emphasis is on the Lie-theoretic aspect, while some connections and applications to arithmetic geometry will also be mentioned.Comment: 2018 ICM report, reference update

    Total positivity in the De Concini-Procesi compactification

    Full text link
    We study the nonnegative part \bar{G_{>0}} of the De Concini-Procesi compactification of a reductive algebraic group G, as defined by Lusztig. Using positivity properties of the canonical basis and parametrization of flag varieties, we will give an explicit description of \bar{G_{>0}}. This answers the question of Lusztig in [L4]. We will also prove that \bar{G_{>0}} has a cell decomposition which was conjectured by Lusztig.Comment: 23 pages. Some corrections. References update

    Kottwitz-Rapoport conjecture on unions of affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties

    Full text link
    In this paper, we prove a conjecture of Kottwitz and Rapoport on a union of (generalized) affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties X(μ,b)JX(\mu, b)_J for any tamely ramified group GG and its parahoric subgroup PJP_J. We show that X(μ,b)JX(\mu, b)_J \neq \emptyset if and only if the group-theoretic version of Mazur's inequality is satisfied. In the process, we obtain a generalization of Grothendieck's conjecture on the closure relation of \s-conjugacy classes of a twisted loop group.Comment: 19 page

    Minimal length elements in some double cosets of Coxeter groups

    Get PDF
    We study the minimal length elements in some double cosets of Coxeter groups and use them to study Lusztig's GG-stable pieces and the generalization of GG-stable pieces introduced by Lu and Yakimov. We also use them to study the minimal length elements in a conjugacy class of a finite Coxeter group and prove a conjecture in \cite{GKP}.Comment: 35 page
