Title: Representation Theory and Differentiation

Abstract: the Beilinson Bernstein Theorem describes 
representations of a Lie algebra like sl_2 in terms 
of modules for differential operators. I’ll explain 
this result, its central role in representation 
theory, and some arithmetic generalisations.

Remark: this would be a talk for the general audience 
with an Algebra Seminar talk in the following week for 
more technical issues.
