Hitchin Systems in Mathematics and Beyond – Steven Rayan (University of Saskatchewan)

June 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Hitchin system, discovered in 1987, is a moduli space arising from the geometric study of the Yang-Mills equations on Riemann surfaces. Over the past 30 years it has become both a unifying structure and an important tool for probing many questions at the interface of complex algebraic geometry, representation theory, and integrable systems. A strong case can be made for the claim that all roads lead to the Hitchin system, at least so far as these subjects are concerned.…
