In a highest weight category, ''decomposition numbers'' refers to multiplicities of simple objects in standard objects. I will describe results that are known about decomposition numbers for Category O of a rational Cherednik algebra, and mention some questions that remain open.

Let X be a smooth proper scheme over a field of characteristic 0, and let E be a
vector bundle on X.  The classical Hirzebruch-Riemann-Roch says that the Euler characteristic of the cohomology H^*(X,E) equals \int_X  ch(E) Td(X).
Thus, HRR is an equality of numbers, i.e., elements of a set.  In these talks,
we will explain a proof of HRR that uses the hierarchy
{2-categories} -> {1-categories} -> {Vector spaces} -> {Numbers}.
I.e., the origin of HRR will be 2-categorical.  The procedure by which we
