**Tuesday, March 17, 5-7pm, 105 Shillman, Thursday and Friday, March 19 and 20,
010 Behrakis, 4-6pm. Here is a map
(Shillman is building 30 and Behrakis is building 26).**

**Topic**: *Computations in quantum K-theory*.
This deals with ramifications of a nice short paper
which offers a new approach to Geometric representation theory and computes quantum cohomology
of Nakajima quiver varieties.

*Background reading/watching*:

1) Equivariant K-theory, a reference is Chriss-Ginzburg book, Chapter 5.

2) Some understanding of quantum cohomology will be useful. Possible source -- lectures of Barbara Bolognese, Michael Viscardi, Ryan Mickler, Eric Riedl from this seminar.

3) This is NOT a prerequisite but understanding connections between quantum cohomology and representation theory may be useful as well. Last year, Andrei gave a series of lectures in Princeton on this topic, videos are available. There are also notes of Mike McBreen's talks, see here and here.

Lectures will be preceded by a graduate student seminar in the first week of March.
