Quiver varieties and the quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equation

  • P. Zinn-JustinEmail author


We show how equivariant volumes of tensor product quiver varieties of type A are given by matrix elements of vertex operators of centrally extended doubles of Yangians and how these elements satisfy the rational level-one quantum Knizhnik–Zamolodchikov equation in some cases.
