Vector partition functions and the topology of multiple weight varieties
[ Abstract ]
A multiple weight variety is a symplectic quotient of a direct product
of several coadjoint orbits of a compact Lie group $G$, with respect to
the diagonal action of the maximal torus. Its geometry and topology are
closely related to the combinatorics concerned with the weight space
decomposition of a tensor product of irreducible representations of $G$.
For example, when considering the Riemann-Roch index, we are naturally
lead to the study of vector partition functions with multiplicities.
In this talk, we discuss some formulas for vector partition functions,
especially a generalization of the formula of Brion-Vergne. Then, by
them, we investigate the structure of the cohomology of certain multiple
weight varieties of type $A$ in detail.
