ABSTRACT: In analysis, the convolution of two functions results in a smoother, better behaved function. It is interesting to ask whether an analogue of this phenomenon exists in the setting of algebraic geometry. Let f and g be two morphisms from algebraic varieties X and Y to an algebraic group G. We define their convolution to be a morphism f?g from X×Y to G by first applying each morphism and then multiplying using the group structure of G.
