Abstract:

The classical McKay correspondence is a 1-1 correspondence between non-trivial irreducible representations of a finite subgroup $G$ of $SL^2(C)$ and irreducible divisors on the minimal resolution $Y$ of $C^2/G$.

In this talk I first introduce, explain and illustrate this classical correspondence. Then I describe joint work with Sabin Cautis and Alastair Craw in which we generalise it to dimension three using the famous Bridgeland-King-Reid derived equivalence. Specifically, we show a natural way to extract from this equivalence a correspondence between irreducible representations of $G \subset SL^3(C)$ and exceptional subvarieties of $Y = G-Hilb(C^3)$. The same method applied to $G \subset SL^2(C)$ produces the classical McKay.
