Springer Theory for u (sln)

Part of the Modern Birkhäuser Classics book series (MBC)


One might ask whether the work of producing representations of Weyl groups by geometric means, carried out in the previous chapter, was worth-while. Our point is that absolutely the same machinery can be applied to construct representations of sln(C) and perhaps other semisimple Lie algebras, cf. [Na2]. Many of the objects we use for studying the sln(C)-case are analogous to the objects in the Weyl group case.
