Hello, where can I read about some basic properties of twisted D-Modules? I would like to know, a reference, that describes how to glue these modules together/pull them back/push them forward.

Your link didn't work proper for me, however it also helped me finding Gaitsgory's page, thank you! – Jan Weidner Mar 29 '10 at 16:50
Also check out this master thesis of some guy. It has detailed treatment for toy examples – Shizhuo Zhang Mar 29 '10 at 18:55

You would probably do well with any of the resources under "D-modules" on Gaitsgory's page. Ginzburg's lectures are good, as is the book by Hotta, Takeuchi and Tanisaki.

I already checked out the book, there is not much about tdos, however Gaitsgory's page looks promising, thanks! – Jan Weidner Mar 29 '10 at 16:43

Others have posted links to a scan of the Beilinson-Bernstein paper on Dennis Gaitsgory's page. You can find a different scan on Joseph Bernstein's page, where it is number 49.

Thank you, I think I like your scan more :) – Jan Weidner Mar 29 '10 at 20:27
