I will speak about a proof of my conjectured puzzle formula for the equivariant Schubert structure constants of two-step flag varieties. This formula generalizes Knutson and Tao's puzzle rule for the equivariant cohomology of Grassmannians, as well as the cohomological puzzle rule for two-step flag varieties that was originally conjectured by Knutson.  Thanks to the equivariant version of the `quantum equals classical' result, my formula specializes to a Littlewood-Richardson rule for the equivariant quantum cohomology ofGrassmannians.
