By Hiraku Nakajima

The Hilbert scheme $X^{[n]}$ of a floor $X$ describes collections of $n$ (not inevitably designated) issues on $X$. extra accurately, it's the moduli house for $0$-dimensional subschemes of $X$ of size $n$. lately it was once discovered that Hilbert schemes initially studied in algebraic geometry are heavily with regards to a number of branches of arithmetic, akin to singularities, symplectic geometry, illustration theory-even theoretical physics. The dialogue within the booklet displays this selection of Hilbert schemes. for instance, a development of the illustration of the countless dimensional Heisenberg algebra (i.e., Fock area) is gifted. This illustration has been studied widely within the literature in reference to affine Lie algebras, conformal box idea, and so forth. although, the development awarded during this quantity is totally special and offers the unexplored hyperlink among geometry and illustration idea. The booklet bargains a pleasant survey of present advancements during this speedily turning out to be topic. it really is appropriate as a textual content on the complex graduate point.
