Bounded cohomology and Higgs bundles
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
Over the past several years, representations of fundamental groups of compact complex hyperbolic manifolds into Hermitian Lie groups have been studied using bounded group cohomology on the one hand and Higgs bundles on the other hand. In this talk, we will discuss some aspects of the interplay between these two approaches. This is joint work with Tobias Hartnick.
