Abstract: In an earlier joint paper with Kazhdan, a map from the set of unipotent classes in a reductive connected group over C to the conjugacy classes in the Weyl group was defined. In this talk, Prof Lusztig attempts to construct in the opposite direction in terms of the pieces in certain partitions of the flag manifold.
