In this talk I will discuss several connections between the small quantum group and a certain affine Springer fiber. In particular I will mainly discuss some relation of the center of the small quantum group and the cohomology of the affine Springer fiber, part of ongoing joint work with R. Bezrukavnikov, P. Shan and E. Vasserot. I will also mention some description of the category in terms of microlocal sheaves as part of ongoing work with R.Bezrukavnikov, M. McBreen and Z. Yun and certain connec- tions of cohomology of the affine Springer fiber and the Hilbert scheme of points of C^2 as part of joint work with O. Kivinen and I. Losev.
This will be a zoom seminar.
