Quantization is the process of moving from a symplectic manifold describing a classical mechanical system, to a Hilbert space of states for a quantum mechanical system associated to the original classical system.  When the symplectic manifold that we start with is the coadjoint orbit of a Lie group, quantization gives a unitary representation of the Lie group.  This talk will look at the case in which we use the A-model to quantize a symplectic manifold, and link this to Beilinson-Bernstein localization.
