Geometric Methods in Representation Theory

  • Gregg J. Zuckerman
Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 40)


This lecture is a brief introduction to the relationship between the algebraic geometry of flag varieties and the representation theory of reductive Lie algebras and real reductive Lie groups. The author would like to thank the organizers of this conference for the opportunity to make a presentation.
