Abstract: It is known from the classical works of Lusztig and others that the braid group connected with a root system acts on the corresponding quantum group and on its representations. In this talk we shall propose a geometric interpretation of this action in terms of the Fourier - Sato transform of some perverse sheaves over configuration spaces. This is a joint work with Michael Finkelberg.
