Equivariant compactifications of a nilpotent group by $G/P$

11 Oct 2016  ·  Cheong Daewoong ·

Let $G$ be a simple complex algebraic group, $P$ a parabolic subgroup of $G$ and $N$ the unipotent radical of $P.$ The so-called equivariant compactification of $N$ by $G/P$ is given by an action of $N$ on $G/P$ with a dense open orbit isomorphic to $N$. In this article, we investigate how many such equivariant compactifications there exist... Our result says that there is a unique equivariant compactification of $N$ by $G/P$, up to isomorphism, except $\P^n$. read more
