On the geometric realization of the inner product and canonical basis for quantum affine $\mathfrak{sl}_n$

Kevin McGerty

Vol. 6 (2012), No. 6, 1097–1131
Abstract

We give a geometric interpretation of the inner product on the modified quantum group of sl̂n. We also give some applications of this interpretation, including a positivity result for the inner product, and a new geometric construction of the canonical basis.
