Co-t-structures, coherent sheaves,
and the cohomology of tilting modules for algebraic groups.
In the first part of the talk, I will give general background on
co-t-structures (or the equivalent language of silting subcategories),
including elementary examples, and a procedure for constructing
co-t-structures and co-t-structures in terms of the notion of
(co-)quasi-exceptional sets. In particular, this procedure can be applied
to the derived category of coherent sheaves on the nilpotent cone of a
reductive algebraic group. I will explain the connection between this
co-t-structure and 20-year-old conjecture on Humphreys on tilting modules
for algebraic groups.
In the second part of the talk, I will discuss a second, seemingly unrelated
construction of a co-t-structure on the same derived category. A
surprisingly easy argument shows that the two co-t-structures coincide, and
this implies Humphreys's conjecture. This is joint work with W. Hardesty
(and partly also with S. Riche).
