On the monodromy of the Hitchin connection.

Thursday 24th February 2011 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 1
In this talk I will show that the monodromy representation of the projective Hitchin connection on the sheaf of generalized theta functions on the moduli space of vector bundles over a curve has an element of infinite order in its image. I will explain the link with conformal blocks.

We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
