Abstract : Homogeneous spaces under the action of a Lie group are a classical
notion in differential geometry. From Grothendieck and Serre in the
years 1955-1965, these notions passed to the algebraic and arithmetic
geometry setting. The groups are then algebraic groups (namely defined
by polynomial equations as the orthogonal groups) and more generally
The work plan deals with three exploratory research tasks : arithmetic
homogeneous spaces, R-equivalence on homogeneous spaces and
applications of torsors to infinite dimensional Lie theory.
Expected results of the proposal: There are three main directions of work:
- Arithmetical homogeneous spaces,
- R-equivalence and homogeneous spaces,
- Application of torsors to infinite dimension Lie theory.
The first one includes the study of maximal tori of algebraic groups over arithmetic fields.
The second one is about the study of R-equivalence of homogeneous spaces G/H over nice fields
around Serre's vanishing conjecture II in Galois cohomology.
The last one continues the collaboration with V. Chernousov and A. Pianzola and focuses
mainly on the abstract group properties of group of points of loop group schemes and
relevant generalizations of loop torsors.
