Gauge Theory Learning Seminar

Stratifications and Higgs bundles

Richard Wentworth (University of Maryland)

Location:  Hill 705 and Zoom
Date & time: Tuesday, 23 April 2024 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract: This will be a survey talk about some old and more recent work on various stratifications that
appear in moduli spaces of Higgs bundles and holomorphic connections on a compact Riemann surface, possibly with punctures.
The original motivation for this study comes from conjectures in the physics literature.
