Séminaire LaCIM: «Quantum groups, quantum Weyl algebras, and a new First Fundamental Theorem of invariant theory for $U_q(gl(n))$»

Conférencier: Hadi Salamsian (Ottawa)


The First Fundamental Theorem (FFT) is one of the highlightsof invariant theory of reductive groups and goes back to the works of Schur, Weyl, Brauer, etc. For the group $GL(V)$, the FFT describes generators for polynomial invariants on direct sums of several copiesof the standard module $V$ and its dual $V*$. Then R. Howe pointed outthat the FFT is closely related to a double centralizer statementinside a Weyl algebra (a.k.a. the algebra of polynomial-coefficientdifferential operators).

In this talk we first construct a quantum Weyl algebra and then present a quantum analogue of the FFT. As a special case of this FFT we obtain a double centralizer statement inside our quantum Weyl algebra. We remark that the FFT that we obtain is different from the one proved by G. Lehrer, H. Zhang, and R.B. Zhang for U_q(gl(n)). Time permitting, I will explain the connection between this work and the Capelli Eigen value Problem for classical quantum groups. This talk is based on a joint project with Gail Letzter and Siddhartha Sahi.
