Title:  Geometry of (Quantum) Symplectic Resolutions

Abstract:   Singular symplectic varieties, their symplectic resolutions, and quantizations play fundamental roles at the intersection of algebraic geometry, noncommutative algebra, and representation theory. I'll give an introduction, focused on examples, to symplectic varieties and symplectic resolutions and explain what it means to quantize them. I will explain how the quantizations appear in representation theory and how one gets a concrete hold on them. Finally, I'll describe some of the special structures that arise for these quantizations and links to the geometry of (real!) symplectic manifolds. The talk will draw on joint work with McGerty, Dodd, and Bellamy
