# Colloquium: Andrei Okounkov (Columbia) - "Catching monodromy"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

Monodromy of linear differential and difference equations is a very old and classical object, which may be seen as a far-reaching generalization of the exponential map of a Lie group. While general properties of this map may studied abstractly, for certain very special equations of interest in enumerative geometry, representation theory, and also mathematical physics, it is possible to describe the monodromy "explicitly", in certain geometric and algebraic terms. I will explain one such recent set of ideas, following joint work with M. Aganagic and R. Bezrukavnikov.
