I computed the total cohomology of an arbitrary line bundle of
the De-Concini-Procesi compactification of an adjoint semi-simple group
over complex numbers.

The same result was obtained independently by Alexis
Thoudjem. He subsequently extended this result in several directions.

I described the category of bi-equivariant vector bundles of
an arbitrary (bi-equivariant) toroidal compactification of a reductive
group over complex numbers.

I gave a variant of the Lusztig formalism of the
Deligne-Langlands conjecture (for Hecke algebras), which exist only for
symplectic group. As a consequence, I completed the classification of
simple modules of affine Hecke algebras of classical types, except for
the case roughly corresponding to "small root-of-unity parameter" case.

I determined our variant of Springer representations
(introduced in [3]), and compared with the ordinary one. This gives
computations of Joseph polonomials (up to scalar) in many cases which
are previously unknown.

We determined the parameters corresponding to tempered modules
within the framework of [3]. As a bonus, we completed the Heckman-Opdam
theory on the classification of square-integrable solutions of an
integrable system, called the Lieb-McGuire system.

We interpreted the orthogonality relation of Green functions (which are functions roughly govern the characters of finite groups of Lie types) in terms of homological algebra. In particular, we gave a new characterization of Green polynomials. Using this, we derived several properties of Green polynomials of type BC, including a transition formula along a parameter. The concept of Kostka systems (which is an abstraction of the above characterization) and its basic properties is designed to be applicable for complex reflection groups.

We provide a proof that the formal model of the semi-infinite flag manifolds have fundamental nice properties as predicted by Braverman-Finkelberg. This leads us to a proposal of K-group of the semi-infinite flag manifolds, that admits a natural action of the nil-DAHA. This provides a natural framework for a version of the standard monomial theory of a semi-infinite flag manifold, that is described by a combinatorial formula (that particularly implies that the structure constants of such K-theory are manifestly positive).

This is a joint work with Satoshi Naito and Daisuke Sagaki

Peterson discovered a relation between the (co)homology of the affine Grassmannian of a simple (simply connected) algebraic group G and the quantum cohomology of the flag variety of G. Study of automorphic forms and (local) geometric Langlands correspondence indicates that the geometry of affine Grassmannians and semi-infinite flag manifolds are essentially the same. We formulated and proved an assertion that (roughly says that) equivariant geometries of an affine Grassmannian and a semi-infinite flag manifold, and equivariant quantum geometry of a flag manifold are numerically equivalent. The main theorem yields two explicit ways to calculate the structure constants of the quantum K-group of the flag manifolds. One of them resolves conjectures by Lam-Li-Mihalcea-Shimozono. Our proof of the main result significantly differs from the (original) Peterson isomorphism by Lam-Shimozono, and do not require detailed a priori knowledge of the structure constants themselves (logically speaking, all of such "formulas" were conjectures prior to this paper).

We have developed the basic theory of the formal model of the semi-infinite flag manifolds and its parabolic analogue over the ring of integers (with 2 inverted). This reveals that the scheme constructed in a similar spirit to [7] is the most natural algebraic variety that represents semi-infinite flag manifolds, and such a naturality is guaranteed by some property in representation theory (that we also proved in a suitable generality). Such a tight connection between nice properties hold in much greater generality, but I think this paper is the first to tell such a storyline. Both properties are rather abstract, and hence it might be interesting to appreciate that guises of such properties turns into numerical consequences.
