If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lewis Topley. If G is an algebraic group acting on a variety X, the sheets of X are the irreducible components of subsets of elements of X with equidimensional G-orbits. For G complex connected reductive, the sheets for the adjoint action of G on its Lie algebra g were studied by Borho and Kraft in 1979. More recently, Losev has introduced finitely-many subsets of g consisting of equidimensional orbits, called birational sheets: their definition is not as immediate as the one of a sheet, but birational sheets behave better in geometric and representation-theoretic terms. Indeed, birational sheets are disjoint, unibranch varieties with smooth normalization, while this is not true for sheets, in general. Moreover, the G-module structure of the ring of functions C[O] does not change as the orbit O varies in a birational sheet. In this seminar, we define an analogue of birational sheets of conjugacy classes in G: we start by recalling Lusztig-Spaltenstein induction of conjugacy classes in terms of the so-called Springer generalized map and analyse its interplay with birationality. With this tools, we give a definition of birational sheets of G in the case that the derived subgroup of G is smplyconnected. We conclude with an overview of the main features of these varieties, which mirror some of the properties enjoyed by the objects defined by Losev.
