# Informal Friday Seminar: Bellamy -- Symplectic singularities and their quantizations

Over the past decade it has become clear that many important algebras studied in
geometric representation theory fit into the (very!) general framework of quantizations
of symplectic singularities.  This is commonly referred to as "symplectic
representation theory."  The goal of these two talks is to give a very gentle
introduction to this symplectic representation theory point of view.  The emphasis
throughout will be on examples, at least one of which should be very familiar to each
member of the audience.

Notes for this talk can be found on the Informal Friday Seminar webpage:
