Abstract: For any compact Lie group G, the loop group is defined by the space of maps from the circle to G. It has many properties of compact Lie groups including natural homogeneous spaces such as infinite-dimesnional Grassmannians. I will describe a small part this story, and its relationship to one basic ingredient in the geometric Langlands program.
