Braid groups define symmetries of many interesting constructions of mathematical physics, including
quantum groups and mirror symmetry. In this talk, I will review some of the related problems and
results and  explain that the Lawrence-Krammer representation is a quantization of the symmetric
square of the Burau representation.
