Director John Morgan, Principal G-bundles on Elliptic Curves

Title: Principal G-bundles on Elliptic Curves Speaker: John Morgan Date: Tuesday, November 22, 2011 Time: 1:00 – 2:00pm Place: Lecture Hall 102, Simons Center Abstract: In this talk we fix a compact group G and consider holomorphic principal bundles over a given elliptic curve with structure group the complex form of G. We will introduce various ways […]
