## Abstract

### Tom Nevins

Geometry of (Quantum) Symplectic Resolutions

Symplectic resolutions and their quantizations play a fundamental role at the intersection of algebraic geometry and representation theory. Starting from classical examples and constructions, I'll explain what a quantum symplectic resolution is. I'll describe some basic questions about them and some partial results, and, if there's time, connections to Fukaya categories of real symplectic manifolds. The talk draws on joint work with McGerty, Dodd, and Bellamy.
