Abstract: We determine the two-point invariants of the equivariant quantum cohomology of the Hilbert scheme of points of surface resolutions associated to type singularities. The operators encoding these invariants are expressed in terms of the action of the the affine Lie algebra on its basic representation. Assuming a certain nondegeneracy conjecture, these operators determine the full structure of the quantum cohomology ring. A relationship is proven between the quantum cohomology and Gromov-Witten/Donaldson-Thomas theories of . We close with a discussion of the monodromy properties of the associated quantum differential equation and a generalization to singularities of types and .
