K-theoretical/Cohomological Hall algebras, associated with the stack of zero-dimensional sheaves on $\mathbb{C}^2$, play a prominent role in the proof, given by Schiffmann and Vasserot, of the AGT conjecture for

(pure) gauge theories on $\mathbb{C}^2$. In the present talk I will describe K-theoretic/Cohomological Hall algebras associated with stacks of torsion sheaves on A-type ALE spaces and their representations; the study of these algebras will provide eventually an approach to prove the AGT conjecture for (pure) gauge theories on A-type ALE spaces. (Work in progress with Olivier Schiffmann.)
