Homogeneous projective bundles over abelian varieties

Michel Brion

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 10, 2475–2510

We consider projective bundles (or Brauer–Severi varieties) over an abelian variety which are homogeneous, that is, invariant under translation. We describe the structure of these bundles in terms of projective representations of commutative group schemes; the irreducible bundles correspond to Heisenberg groups and their standard representations. Our results extend those of Mukai on semihomogeneous vector bundles, and yield a geometric view of the Brauer group of abelian varieties.
