Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems: January 22 – June 21, 2019

Organized by Lara Anderson and Laura Schaposnik Hitchin systems have found remarkable applications in many different areas of mathematics and physics. In particular, Hausel and Thaddeus related Higgs bundles to mirror symmetry, and in the work of Kapustin and Witten, Higgs bundles were used to give a physical derivation of the geometric Langlands correspondence. Moreover, […]
