“Representation theory of symplectic singularities”

There are a lot of non-commutative algebras out there in the world, so if you want to study some of them, you have to have a theory about which are especially important. One class I find particularly interesting are non-commutative algebras which are “almost” commutative and thus can be studied with algebraic geometry, giving a rough dictionary between certain non-commutative algebras and certain interesting spaces. This leads us to a new perspective on some well-known algebras, like universal enveloping algebras, and also to new ones we hadn’t previously considered.
