The classical Schur-Weyl duality is a correspondence between representations of the symmetric group S_d and the general linear group GL_n. Other types of Schur-Weyl dualities have been established since, and we will explain how to obtain some of these geometrically.
Then we will use this geometric setting to construct new Schur-Weyl dualities between cyclotomic algebras.
