Presented by: Thomas Lam, Michigan

I will discuss a mirror theorem for minuscule flag varieties. The result states that two constructions of certain systems of differential equations coincide: one from quantum cohomology, and one from a Landau-Ginzburg potential. The proof relies on recognizing these objects within the geometric Langlands correspondence.

I will focus on the case of projective space, where classical objects such as Bessel functions and Kloosterman sums appear.

This is joint work with Nicolas Templier
