Betti Geometric Langlands


The Betti geometric Langlands program is a new physics-inspired variant of the [de Rham] geometric Langlands program, in which the geometry of algebraic curves is replaced by the topology of surfaces. It has close relations to representation theory of quantum groups, Hecke algebras and p-adic groups.


I will describe some features of and progress on this program, following work with David Nadler as well as Adrien Brochier, David Jordan and Anatoly Preygel.
