Spectral data for G-Higgs bundles


Speaker: Laura Schaposnik, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
Location: 2112 MSB
Start time: Tue, Jan 14 2014, 4:10PM

Spectral data has been used for many years to study Higgs bundles whose structure groups are complex Lie groups. During the talk we shall recall these constructions, and extended it to the study of Higgs bundles for real forms. This new approach to real Higgs bundles has many applications which, time permitting, we will look at.

There will be a dinner.
