Uhlenbeck compactifications as a stack

Saturday 18th April 2009 - 10:30 to 11:00
I will explain how the Uhlenbeck compactification of vector bundles on a smooth projective surface can be defined as a functor of families (i.e. as an algebraic stack). I will also explain how Hecke correspondences which modify a vector bundle along a divisor on a surface, can be extended to the Uhlenbeck compactification. This construction is related to the conjectural higher dimensional Geometric Langlands program
