**Frobenius Splittings and B-Modules**

by Wilberd van der Kallen

**Publisher**: Springer 1993**ISBN/ASIN**: B001B1EJ4K**Number of pages**: 112

**Description**:

The course given by the author at the Tata Institute in 1992 explains the solution by O. Mathieu of some conjectures in the representation theory of arbitrary semisimple algebraic groups. The conjectures concern filtrations of 'standard' representations; while Demazure studied the representations by means of a particular resolution of singularities of Schubert varieties, the method of Mathieu involves sheaf cohomology and 'Frobenius splittings' on a Demazure resolution in finite characteristic p.
