Organizers: Runlei Xiao, Khai-Hoan Nguyen-Dang

Time: The seminar will be held on Friday, room (TBA), from 14:00. The first talk will take place on November 24

Goal: The first part of the seminar will focus on the affine Grassmannians.
The second part of the seminar will introduce the geometric Satake equivalence.

We mainly follow the lecture notes by Xinwen Zhu.

An outline for the seminar can be found here.
