Abstract

Kashiwara and Saito have a geometric construction of the infinity crystal for any symmetric Kac–Moody algebra. The underlying set consists of the irreducible components of Lusztig’s quiver varieties, which are varieties of nilpotent representations of a pre-projective algebra. We generalize this to symmetrizable Kac–Moody algebras by replacing Lusztig’s preprojective algebra with a more general one due to Dlab and Ringel. In non-symmetric types we are forced to work over non-algebraically-closed fields.
