Let $\mathcal N$ denote the set of $n \times n$ nilpotent matrices. The ``enhanced nilpotent cone’’ is the space $\mathbb C^n \times \mathcal N$. $GL(n)$ acts on $\mathbb C^n$ in an obvious way, and on $\mathcal N$ by conjugation. The orbits of this action are the subject of this talk. From this surprisingly elementary starting point, I will discuss connections to various topics in representation theory, combinatorics, and algebraic geometry, and especially to Syu Kato’s work on the ``exotic nilpotent cone’’ and affine Hecke algebras. This is joint work with A. Henderson.

This talk is part of the Junior Algebra/Logic/Number Theory seminar series.
