We describe an algorithm which takes as input any pair of permutations and gives as output two permutations lying in the same Kazhdan-Lusztig right cell. There is an isomorphism between the Richardson varieties corresponding to the two pairs of permutations which preserves the singularity type. This fact has applications in the study of W-graphs for symmetric groups, as well as in finding examples of reducible associated varieties of sln-highest weight modules, and comparing various bases of irreducible representations of the symmetric group or its Hecke algebra.

We will review a set of conjectures related to the structure of cohomological Hall algebras (COHA) of categories of Higgs sheaves on curves. We then focus on the case of $P^1$, and relate its COHA to the affine Yangian of $sl_2$.

This is joint work with Justin Hilburn. We will explain a theorem showing that D-modules on the Tate vector space of Laurent series are equivalent to ind-coherent sheaves on the space of rank 1 de Rham local systems on the punctured disc equipped with a flat section. Time permitting, we will also describe an application of this result in the global setting. Our results may be understood as a geometric refinement of Tate's ideas in the setting of harmonic analysis.

In quantum geometric Langlands, the Satake equivalence plays a less prominent role than in the classical theory. Gaitsgory--Lurie proposed a conjectural substitute, later termed the fundamental local equivalence, relating categories of arc-integrable Kac--Moody representations and Whittaker D-modules on the affine Grassmannian. With a few exceptions, we verified this conjecture non-factorizably, as well as its extension to the affine flag variety. This is a report on joint work with Justin Campbell and Sam Raskin.

I will explain how to obtain the Gordon-Stafford construction and some related constructions of Z-algebras in the literature, using certain mathematical avatars of line defects in 3d N=4 theories. ​Time permitting, I will discuss the K-theoretic and elliptic cases as well.

We give an introduction to the notion of moduli stack of a dg category.  We explain what shifted symplectic structures are and how they are connected to Calabi-Yau structures on dg categories. More concretely, we will show that the cotangent complex to the moduli stack of a dg category A admits a modular interpretation: namely, it is isomorphic to the moduli stack of the *Calabi-Yau completion* of A. This answers a conjecture of Keller-Yeung. The talk is based on joint work

This is joint work with Damien Calaque and Tristan Bozec

In this talk, I will give a geometric description of the category of representations of the centralizer of a regular unipotent element in a reductive algebraic group in terms of perverse sheaves on the Langlands dual affine flag variety. This is joint work with R. Bezrukavnikov and S. Riche.

Since the 1980s, mathematicians have found connections between orbit closures in type A quiver representation varieties and Schubert varieties in type A flag varieties.

Given a quiver with potential, Kontsevich-Soibelman constructed a Hall algebra on the cohomology of the stack of representations of (Q,W). In particular cases, one recovers positive parts of Yangians as defined by Maulik-Okounkov. For general (Q,W), the Hall algebra has nice structure properties, for example Davison-Meinhardt proved a PBW theorem for it using the decomposition theorem.
