Positivity in T-equivariant K-theory of flag varieties associated to Kac-Moody groups
Seth Baldwin (UNC - Chapel Hill)
- The cohomology rings of flag varieties have long been known to exhibit
positivity properties. One such property is that the structure constants
of the Schubert basis with respect to the cup product are non-negative.
Brion (2002) and Anderson-Griffeth-Miller (2011) have shown that positivity
extends to K-theory and T-equivariant K-theory, respectively. In this talk
I will discuss recent work (joint with Shrawan Kumar) which generalizes
these results to the case of Kac-Moody groups.

Fake projective spaces and fake tori
Olivier Debarre (Ecole Normale Supérieure and Duke)
- We discuss compact complex manifolds which ``look like'' complex projective
spaces or complex tori.
Hirzebruch and Kodaira proved in 1957 that when n is odd, any compact
Kähler manifold X which is homeomorphic to Pn is isomorphic to
Pn. This holds for all n by Aubin and Yau's proofs of the Calabi
conjecture. One may conjecture that it should be sufficient to assume that
the integral cohomology rings H*(X,Z) and H*(Pn,Z) are isomorphic.
Catanese observed that complex tori are characterized among compact Kähler
manifolds X by the fact that their integral cohomology rings are exterior
algebras on H1(X,Z) and asked whether this remains true under the
weaker assumption that the rational cohomology ring is an exterior algebra
on H1(X,Q). (We call the corresponding compact Kähler manifolds
``rational cohomology tori".)
We give a negative answer to Catanese's question by producing explicit
examples. We also prove some structure theorems for rational cohomology
tori. This is work in collaboration with Z. Jiang, M. Lahoz, and W. F.
