Title:Group valued momentum maps, 1
Seminar:Noncommutative Geometry Seminar
Speaker:Ping Xu, Penn State
Abstract:
About a decade ago, Alekseev-Malkin-Meinrenken introduced the theory of "quasi"-Hamiltonian G-spaces for which the momentum takes values in the group G itself rather than in the dual of the Lie algebra. The theory includes counterparts of Hamiltonian reduction. Application includes moduli spaces of flat connections on 2-manifolds.
