Orbifolds and finite group representations. (English) Zbl 1065.14018
Summary: We present our recent understanding on resolutions of Gorenstein orbifolds, which involves the finite group representation theory. We concern only the quotient singularity of hypersurface type. The abelian group \(A_r(n)\) for \(A\)-type hypersurface quotient singularity of dimension \(n\) is introduced. For \(n=4\), the structure of the Hilbert scheme of group orbits and crepant resolutions of \(A_r(4)\)-singularity are obtained. The flop procedure of 4-folds is explicitly constructed through the process.
