Gross, Hacking and I conjecture that the vector space of regular function on a smooth affine manifold with a holomorphic volume form (of the right sort) comes with a canonical basis. I’ll explain, in language accessible to a second year graduate student, the conjecture, our partial results— the proof in dimension two, and, together with Kontsevich, for cluster varieties of all dimension, and some of the many applications, to representation theory, teichmuller theory, mori theory, symplectic geometry, cluster algebras, and mirror symmetry.
