Hessenberg varieties and Stanley-Stembridge conjecture in graph theory (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
Hessenberg varieties, a family of subvarieties of flag varieties, includes Springer fibers in geometric representation theory, Peterson varieties related to the quantum cohomology of flag varieties, and permutohedral varieties which are nonsingular toric varieties. Hessenberg varieties are also related to the QR algorithm for matrix eigenvalues and to hyperplane arrangements. Recently, Hessenberg varieties have attracted attention because of their connection to the Stanley-Stembridge conjecture on symmetric functions in graph theory. In this talk, I will explain how Hessenberg varieties are related to this conjecture.
