On Stratified Algebras and Lie Superalgebras

University dissertation from Uppsala : Matematiska institutionen

Abstract: This thesis, consisting of three papers and a summary, studies properties of stratified algebras and representations of Lie superalgebras.In Paper I we give a characterization when the Ringel dual of an SSS-algebra is properly stratified.We show that for an SSS-algebra, whose Ringel dual is properly stratified, there is a (generalized) tilting module which allows one to compute the finitistic dimension of the SSS-algebra, and moreover, it gives rise to a new covariant Ringel-type duality.In Paper II we give a characterization of standardly stratified algebras in terms of certain filtrations of (left or right) projective modules, generalizing the corresponding theorem of V. Dlab. We extend the notion of Ringel duality to standardly stratified algebras and estimate their finitistic dimension in terms of endomorphism algebras of standard modules.Paper III deals with the queer Lie superalgebra and the corresponding BGG-category O. We show that the typical blocks correspond to standardly stratified algebras, and we generalize Kostant's Theorem to the queer Lie superalgebra.
