We interpret the equivariant cohomology algebra View the MathML source of the cotangent bundle of a partial flag variety View the MathML source parametrizing chains of subspaces 0=F0⊂F1⊂⋯⊂FN=Cn, dimFi/Fi−1=λi, as the Yangian Bethe algebra View the MathML source of the glN-weight subspace View the MathML source of a Y(glN)-module View the MathML source. Under this identification the dynamical connection of Tarasov and Varchenko (2002) [12] turns into the quantum connection of Braverman et al. (2010) [4] and Maulik and Okounkov (2012) [5]. As a result of this identification we describe the algebra of quantum multiplication on View the MathML source as the algebra of functions on fibers of a discrete Wronski map. In particular this gives generators and relations of that algebra. This identification also gives us hypergeometric solutions of the associated quantum differential equation. That fact manifests the Landau–Ginzburg mirror symmetry for the cotangent bundle of the flag variety.
