${N \choose k} = {N \choose N-k}$  [PDF]

We will study this standard high-school binomial identity in greater depth. The resulting ideas, despite their humble beginnings, have lead to a series of advances in diverse areas such as representation theory, algebraic geometry and quantum topology. We survey some of these results and explain how they are all tied together.
