Abstract:  This is part of my joint work with Prof. Usha Bhosle.  I will   determine (semi)stability of kernels of evaluation maps of globally generated torsion-free sheaves on a nodal and cuspidal curve in some important cases. I will use them  to study (semi)stability properties of the restrictions of the Picard bundle $E_d$ (on the compactified Jacobian) to the images of $Y$ in the compactified Jacobian for certain embeddings.
