Generalizations of parabolic bundles related to Higgs bundles

Monday 14th March 2011 - 11:30 to 12:30
The first part of the talk will be devoted to work in progress together with O. Biquard and Ó. García-Prada on a version of parabolic Higgs bundles which correspond to (semistable) G-local systems on a punctured Riemann surface, where G is a real semisimple Lie group. In the second part we will talk about ongoing work with M. Logares on a generalization of parabolic bundles which correspond (via a construction which relates them to conic bundles) to Sp(6,R)-local systems on compact Riemann surfaces. Emphasis will be on the stability conditions; a unifying theme will be the interpretation of the local terms in the formula for the parabolic degree in terms of GIT.
