A hyper-Kählerian structure on coadjoint orbits of a semisimple complex group. (English) Zbl 0721.22006
Let G be a compact Lie group. The author studies the orbits of the complexified group \(G^ c\) in the dual space of its own Lie algebra. His main result is that in the case of regular semisimple orbits (i.e. those of the form \(C^ c/T^ c\), where \(T^ c\) is a maximal complex torus), these manifolds have a quaternionic, or hyper-Kählerian structure (i.e. they possess 3 anti-commuting complex structures I, J, K and a Riemannian metric g which is Kähler with respect to all three).
