Geometric representation theory and the geometric Satake equivalence

During this colloquium Geordie will explain in very broad terms, what the Langlands correspondence is and why people care about it. He will then explain in greater detail, what the geometric Satake equivalence is, and finally discuss a recent application to the representation theory of algebraic groups. The new result in this talk is joint with Simon Riche.
