Recently, a "symplectic duality" between D-modules on certainpairs of algebraic symplectic manifolds was discovered, generalizingclassic work of Beilinson-Ginzburg-Soergel in geometric representationtheory. I will discuss how such dual spaces (some known and some new) arisenaturally in supersymmetric gauge theory in three dimensions.
