January 7, 2014 4:00 p.m. // 151 Sloan Xinwen Zhu (Northwestern)  Geometric Satake and its applications Abstract: The Satake isomorphism, which describes the spherical Hecke algebra of a padic group in terms of the representation ring of its Langlands dual group, is the starting point of the Langlands duality. I will give an introduction to its categorical version, known as the geometric Satake correspondence. I will also discuss its applications to topology, combinatorics, and arithmetic geometry.
