Topological K-theory of equivariant singularity categories
LePotier's Strange Duality and Quot Schemes Finite schemes of quotients over a smooth curve are a vehicle for proving strange duality for determinant line bundles on moduli spaces of vector bundles on Riemann surfaces. This was observed by Marian and Oprea. In work with Drew Johnson and Thomas Goller, we extend this idea to del Pezzo surfaces, where we are able to use it to prove cases of Le Potier's strange duality conjecture.
