Venue:A6-1 Zoom: 638 227 8222 BIMSA

Organizer:Artan Sheshmani, Nanjun Yang, Beihui Yuan

Speaker:Sebastian Heller BIMSA


The Deligne-Hitchin moduli space is the complex analytic reincarnation of the twistor space of thehyperkhler moduli space of solutions to the self-duality equations. Besides twistor lines, there arevarious other types of holomorphic sections satisfying a reality condition.These sections are usually related to solutions of certain integrable PDEs.Besides explaining these concepts and answering a question raised by Simpson, l will alsointroduce a natural energy functional on the space of sections and its relationship to thehyperholomorphic line bundle over the Deligne-Hitchin module space.

      Moduli Spaces and Related Topics | Hitchin morphism for projective varieties

      Abstract:The Hitchin morphism is a map from the moduli space of Higgs bundles to the Hitchin base, which is generally not surjective when the dimension of the variety is greater than one. Chen-Ngo introduced the concept of the spectral base, which is a closed subscheme of the Hitchin base. They conjectured that the Hitchin morphism is surjective to the spectral base and also proved that the su...

      The spectral base of Hitchin maps | GRASP seminar

      AbstractLet X be a projective manifold. The Hitchin morphism is a map from the moduli stack of Higgsbundles over X to the Hitchin base, which sends a Higgs bundle to its characteristic polynomial. lfX is a curve, it is well-known that the Hitchin morphism is surjective and it plays an important rolein the study of the moduli space of Higgs bundles. However, if X has dimension at least two, theH...
