Abstract: Dimofte has developed a method for calculating A-polynomials via geometric quantisation and symplectic reduction. This method allows us not only to compute the classical A-polynomial but also a quantisation which conjecturally annihilates the 3-d index and appears in the AJ conjecture. I'll discuss his method and present an example.
