Evan Sundbo, University of Saskatchewan: "Higgs bundles and the geometry of twisted quiver varieties"

Feb 07, 2019 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

LMS 4 - Raum 526 - Übungsraum


Higgs bundles first arose via Hitchin’s study of the self-dual Yang-Mills equations, and their moduli space displays a rich geometric structure.  We will describe how moduli spaces of certain twisted representations of quivers can be used to understand the Higgs bundle moduli space and explore some interesting features of these quiver varieties themselves.
