Abstract/Media

I will explain how (q,t)-parameters appear in the modular representation theory of finite groups of Lie type. For GL_n, Hilbert schemes of points on A_d-surfaces arise by degenerating representation categories. I will also discuss possible relations with topological and conformal field theories.
