Gwyn Bellamy (Glasgow), Symplectic resolutions of quiver varieties.
Quiver varieties, as introduced by Nakajima, play a key role in
representation theory. They give a very large class of symplectic
singularities and, in many cases, their symplectic resolutions too. However,
there seems to be no general criterion in the literature for when a quiver
variety admits a symplectic resolution. In this talk I will give necessary
and sufficient conditions for a quiver variety to admit a symplectic
resolution. This result is based on work of Crawley-Boevey and of Kaledin,
Lehn and Sorger. The talk is based on joint work with T. Schedler.
