# Spencer Leslie : Whittaker functions and connections to crystal graphs

Whittaker functions are certain special functions that play a central role in automorphic representation theory. When dealing with automorphic forms on covering groups, new methods are needed to compute these functions. In this talk, I will outline how the study of this problem has uncovered connections with geometric representation theory and crystal graphs. I also explain my work in making this connection practical, allowing for new computations of spherical Whittaker functions for covering groups.
