Higgs bundles and surface group representations in non-compact real groups

Date: 
Monday 14th March 2011 - 10:00 to 11:00
Abstract: 
We will describe how Higgs bundles, inherently holomorphic objects, are related to surface group representations in non-compact real Lie groups and how this relationship can be used to answer questions about the corresponding representation varieties. The real group Sp(4,R) will be given special attention.
