Speaker: Yiannis Loizides, Pennsylvania State University

Abstract: I will describe an approach to the quantization problem for Hamiltonian loop group spaces, how to do `Witten deformation' in this context, and the relation with the quantization-commutes-with-reduction theorem. We will see a little K-theory, some elliptic boundary value problems, and time-permitting some transversally elliptic operators. This is joint work with Yanli Song. I gave two related talks last year at Penn State. I will not assume anything from them, but if you did catch these, this talk will be complementary.
